GirlCon is an international tech conference aiming to empower the next generation of female leaders. The annual event features breakout, professional development, and keynote sessions from numerous companies and backgrounds, giving attendees the opportunity to learn and make connections. The lack of diversity in STEM is an issue that everyone on the GirlCon team strives to fix. https://girlcon.org/

Combining sport + STEM!
“Community Heroes are inspiring individuals, organizations or businesses who, through their selflessness, strength and self-sacrifice, have been agents of change, positively benefitting others and the Highland Park community. The Community Hero Awards were created by the City of Highland Park’s Human Relations Advisory Group in 2021 to honor those who have stepped up and gone above and beyond to support the Highland Park Community during the COVID pandemic."
Just like my in-person Zumba classes, my online classes are free of charge. Some participants are so grateful that they insist on paying for the online classes. We forwarded previous donations to our local Moraine Township Food Pantry and to Feeding America. To date, over $1,500 has been donated! My Zumba fundraising now focuses on supporting Girls in STEM.

Great memories of summers at Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development.
