We had five Ignite Panel Volunteers speak to 44 of our 7th and 8th grade girls.
The girls really enjoyed the presentations and here is some of the feedback from them:
“ I really enjoyed hearing about the journey of our guests and it has inspired me to never give up!”
“Computer science is the one that inspired me the most because computer is really fun to do or to work with. I’m just really interested in how it works”
“Learning about money and college and that it is possible to go to school and still take care of myself”
“I liked hearing about how to get money to go to college and now money should never stop us. I also didn’t know about scholarships”
“ I really liked hearing about the different paths you can take to get to a STEM career and also the varieties of jobs in the hose fields. I thought it was cool how the speakers all kept trying for what they wanted to do and eventually got there”
“ I liked that one of the speakers was from India and told us her struggles. I also related to her about how she didn’t know what she wanted to do”
“ I loved hearing about the back stories of the IGNITE women. They were very inspiring. They answered our questions clearly and were not afraid to show any struggles they had”
Almost all of the girls stated that they were much more interested in STEM fields than they were before listening to you all speak. Thank you for helping us at Broadview Thomson in our quest to encourage and inspire girls to follow their dreams and live up to their full potentials.
We will look forward to further future events with your great program.
