VP of Ways and Means PTSA Bellevue WA
WHY YOU ARE INVOLVED WITH IGNITE?
The reason I am involved in IGNITE is that I want to empower girls and women from all over the world and from every generation, whether it be the new girls entering STEM to the women who strive to learn more. Girls and women need to know that they can be whatever they want to be if they have the passion and determination to accomplish whatever their heart desires.
HOW HAS IGNITE INSPIRED YOU?
IGNITE has inspired and impacted us in many ways. One thing that stands out is the genuine and strong bias towards action to create a strong and powerful Impact for the community of smart girls in STEM.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE OUR WIDER COMMUNITY TO KNOW ABOUT IGNITE?
I see IGNITE as a way to change the past, present and what comes next by promoting STEM for Girls and to help them prosper in various ways. My mindset is to create a better community in which we would be able to connect and learn with the girls interested in STEM, and to start with creating programs where girls start at a younger age, which makes them more comfortable to participate in activities related to STEM. With a positive output, more and more capable and smart girls can learn more about their potential.

The Present and what comes next > I have a young 12 year old daughter whom loves STEM and has gained confidence in her knowledge in what she’s learned and has been so happy to have the opportunity to now know that she was capable of things that used to be unknown to her. Though, it had come to my attention that STEM and the learning towards it has recently unpopular because of the peer pressure that makes it so. I truly believe that we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to forever change the minds of girls one by one and school by school around the globe.
