Quote on Mentorship: Quote on Mentorship from women on this platform (1/3)

I am celebrating my birthday today and happy to invite you all to be a part of a project dear to my heart. I am particularly excited about this one because my career journey has been shaped due to the support I have had from mentors.

In paying it forward, I introduce or re-introduce the STEM Girls Picture Perfect Project.

A book-based approach to mentorship aimed at building a STEM Identity for girls through a color book. The book summarizes women’s work in STEM, dares girls to dream, shift perceptions, bridges the inequality gap, and allows girls to contribute to shaping the world through STEM.

Visit our page to nominate a female in STEM or yourself to be featured: https://stemgirlspictureperfect.disha.page/

It takes a community to create change and I am happy to have you be a part.

On the project's social media pages, I have added some of the comments received from women here as quotes. We plan to celebrate women with works in the STEM field on our pages on Wednesday.  Please inbox me a short bio and photo if you will love to be featured on our pages.

Hope you have a great week.

Hi Lily,

Hope you had a great birthday?

You're welcome.

You can nominate as many. We will have different versions of the books so there is no deadline. If a name does not make it to the first, it will go to the next.

Hello, Lily,

Wow, thanks for including my quote on your project. Happy birthday, dear. I am late to the party. You are doing important work. I wish I had access to STEM coloring books as a girl. You are right. It certainly takes a community to empower STEM girls. Keep it up! We're proud of you.
