WHY ARE YOU INVOLVED WITH IGNITE?
I find IGNITE Worldwide the perfect place to volunteer my time. Working with IGNITE, I get to directly impact young girls and help them shape their futures. I see faces light up when I tell my story of struggle from childhood dyslexia to a successful, high-tech career. In my life, I was given several opportunities to learn and develop that lead me to interesting work in a STEM field. Through IGNITE I am able to give back to the community to help grow the future workforce of women in STEM careers.
