WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO LEAD IGNITE At YOUR SCHOOL?
I first started working with IGNITE when our Career Center Specialist was leading it. I had a great rapport with our young mothers at our school and felt they could be very impacted by understanding the opportunities available to them with a background in technology.
WHAT IMPACT HAS IGNITE HAD ON YOUR FEMALE STUDENTS?
They have their eyes opened and their minds blown to the possibilities that await them. I think it is so valuable for them to truly see firsthand where technology is going and the path that it has led women in our community.
ARE THERE ANY MEMORABLE STORIES ABOUT HOW IGNITE HAS HAD AN IMPACT ON A PARTICULAR GIRL?
At the last Boeing trip we went to it was especially impactful for our teen parents that I brought to hear the story of the teen mom who was so successful in Boeing. It was amazing to hear them speak about themselves as they really COULD see themselves in that company, being that successful and having the opportunities from working hard in the field of technology.
