Why do you want to be an ambassador?

I'm excited and thrilled to see the possibilities and endless opportunities the field of STEM is providing for students, particularly those who are prepared and willing to think outside the box, solve problems, design solutions and to look at each challenge as an opportunity for growth and to challenge themselves. I want to see more students both male and female, see that STEM is a great career opportunity, one that I wish had been available for me 20 years ago.

I want to give our distance education students from rural and remote areas the opportunity to access this opportunity.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

To encourage students to engage in STEM and innovation. TGMF breaks down barriers, such as distance to our students in rural and regional areas who may not be offered many opportunities and allows inclusion for girls from all diverse backgrounds to be the Superhero's they are.

Why do you want to be an ambassador?

It is a great opportunity to help the community, while extending my knowledge of technology and programming. At the moment I am involved in both the Robotics program and I am an Environmental leader, I enjoy doing both of these as I like working with other people and seeing the end result after the work we have put in.
