Why do you want to be an ambassador?

My Teacher at school mentioned it to us at school and I am interested in STEM subjects and I am looking at improving my educational outcomes and this program sounds interesting.

The tech girls program has helped me discover the wonders and paths throughout technology. By doing this program I have learned how to code, how to plan and much more! I have learned so much throughout this program I could possibly have a future involving technology which opens up my opportunities and my mind. I want to be an ambassador because I now know enough, from the program and my ICT classes, to teach other girls how to code and make their own games or apps. This program can help girls and their futures!

I want to become a tech Ambassador because tech girls helped me learn more about tech and global issues like Racism, Famine, Pollution and much more. Being a Tech Ambassador helped me to understand how people deal with the situations. I want to be able to share my new skills with other girls like myself.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

As it could be a great opportunity for me! I have always loved science and maths. When I saw the Tech Girls Program, I had a feeling it was going to be lots of fun as well as a great learning opportunity for me as well as the other girls. STEM is an important part of today and more girls need to get into it. So, I wanted to become an ambassador for Tech Girls so I can help spread the program as well as a love of STEM to the most girls possible.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

I want to be an Tech Girls Regional Ambassador because, I want to be apart of something that is actively encouraging our future generations to have a go and be open to amazing opportunities. Being apart of this program will lead to so many great experiences and hands on fun. I believe this program really is making a difference and I was overjoyed to learn I could be apart of the work that goes on in this program, I want to help other girls to feel this way and show them the amazing things that they too can be apart of. I am so excited to explore this and make the most of the opportunities that come my way. In ending, this is something I really want to be a part of so that I can help to represent and recognise all of the amazing skills, not just in STEM, but also other areas, that our future generations of girls will bring.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

I want to be open to new and exciting opportunities and give people the chance to change our future in a positive way. I want to encourage other girls to become open to STEM and become more innovative. In many years, many jobs will become unavailable due to advanced technology; jobs that require a high amount of skill (Jobs fit for STEM Students), would be the only jobs left for humans. Being included in this Ambassador Program can help not just me to become more involved in my studies and help make most of my schooling years, but those around me, too.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

I would like to become a regional ambassador so as I can share the knowledge that I have and will learn throughout the tech girls program with new and emerging tech girls as well continuing to learn myself because as they say THE BEST WAY TO LEARN IS TO TEACH.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

Girls can do anything but they often miss the opportunities simply because there's no one there to support them. I was one of those girls and I want to be a support for girls.

I have entered teams of students in the challenge for the past 2 years, love the movement, have witnessed firsthand the opportunities and doors it opens for all concerned. Students, mentors and teachers become one as we all work towards common goals and solutions to real world problems.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

As a digital technologies teacher working in classrooms from Prep to Year 8 I am passionate about increasing the number of girls in tech. I see their talents, skills and enthusiasm in our classrooms on a daily basis and want to see this move through to senior schooling and career opportunities. Last year I enrolled my group and we dabbled in the competition behind the scenes but this year we are keen to compete as well as engage more students from the school. As a member of the Sunshine Coast Robotics Committee I am interested in developing initiatives, skillset and support across the Coast.
