An extraordinary woman @cupasaki had a vision to create a camp that would provide urban teen girls a pipeline into STEM careers. Her creation, The Girls Interested in Engineering, Math, and Science (GEMS) camp holds the mission statement: “To build confidence in urban teen girls in five core areas–academics, career, creativity, leadership, and service– so that they will be successful in STEM studies and careers.” Year after year, along with the amazing leadership of @eevy2011 I have the privilege of giving back my time to my community to give our campers and our volunteers the opportunity to develop the academic and leadership skills to become successful women in their futures. This was our first week long camp as opposed to our traditional Saturday only camp. It was challenging and we literally ate, slept, and breathe The GEMS Camp.
I’ll go ahead and take the L for not taking more pictures with our campers and volunteers (I think the only ones a I can find are from graduation). Yes, I used all my personal leave days from my job to be there for my girls and I wI’ll not hesitate to do it again! I love you all and thank you for letting me be part of your life and endeavors 💚💗😍 Thank you Saki Milton for continuing your vision and inspiring the women around and thank you Ivette Valadez for being the rock and the strength of The GEMS Camp! & let’s not forget our IT guy Jaime and the assistant to the IT guy @abonds95. Y’all are the best.❤️❤️❤️ #TheGEMSCamp2018#TheGEMSCamp#Service#DallasNonProfits#Dallas#Education#STEM
Decided to get casually dressed instead of wearing my scrubs or gym clothes.
How does my mom respond? “Go put some pants on!” Yeah mom, like I’m going to get hit on by 5 year olds at the movies. AND IT’S SUMMER. Did I mention I’m in my mid-twenties? 🤔🙄😩🙃💀😂 #AMothersLove
