Why do you volunteer for STEAM for All (previously known as Math for Service)?

I have loved math all my life and participated in the All Girls Math Tournament throughout elementary and middle school.

Why do you volunteer for STEAM for All (previously known as Math for Service)?

I want to give back to the community and provide experiences similar to the ones I was fortunate to be given, and instill a love for math and science in others. I have learned how to communicate well with others to complete tasks and projects. MfS has taught me what my strengths and weaknesses are, and how I can overcome them. In the upcoming year, I hope to expand the outreach of the All Girls Math Tournament. I think it is vital that girls pursue an interest in STEM, and that AGMT is an organization who can facilitate this effort.

Why do you volunteer for STEAM for All (previously known as Math for Service)?

As I child, I always remember being daunted by the boys who constantly surrounded me. From math tournaments to robotics, I was often the only girl which discouraged me from joining tournaments and classes. All Girls Math tournament has truly shown me the importance of girls education. Through interacting with various groups of girls over the past two years, I have learned how valuable an all girls learning environment can be.

Dedicating my time and effort into helping foster interests in math, especially in girls, is worthwhile and that worthwhileness is why I continue to volunteer.
