As a junior at an all-girls school in Alhambra, I see the mission of empowering teen girls in STEAMS on a daily basis. On any given day, I might see the robotics team shuffling nuts and volts across the room in a mad flurry to design a robot and then walk past the choir, singing tenors harmoniously. As for myself, Information Technology has taken a bite out of me! After attending the panel, I researched tech opportunities for teens and I hope to be accepted to a global learning classroom. As a Latina, my hope is to help bring STEAMS panels to more communities in the East LA area. We can do it!
