I created a multimedia presentation and coached Astrid as she wrote and perfected the performance of her poem; in the end… all we did was win, win, win $10,500 for Project Scientist!!
The young lady holding the flowers is Astrid. I had the pleasure of coaching her this week. With the help of her dedicated parents, she juggled a science fare, swimming practices, homework and still managed a flawless performance. I am so proud of this exceptional young lady, she personifies all the reasons that GIRL ROCK! Thank you Lowe’s and Pride Magazine for investing in future scientists. The money will go to programs such as Project Scientist’s summer camp for young girls with interest in STEM careers.
Congrats to my little homie Astrid for an amazing performance, and winning the Pride STEM non-profit competition for Project Scientist. I’m so proud you. Girls are what’s up! #turndownforwhat #blackgirlsROCK
