Hello, my name is Jenny Oh, and I am returning for the 3rd year as Chair of the Girls in Technology Mentor Protégé Program in Virginia.
I thank you all for your interest in being a mentor to young girls who are looking to learn from your experiences in the STEM fields. And from the bottom of my heart thank you to our 27 repeat mentors! <3
Each year I am amazed by the protégés and their impressive talents and ambitions. But it is still a challenging and uncertain point in their lives, where every little bit of advice, every ounce of your wisdom and guidance truly helps to shape their future success in STEM. I felt the magic of GIT when I joined in 2013, and the magic is still very much there for me. I am so inspired by how one mentors experience can provide confidence and courage to a protégé, and how one protégés dreams can reignite passion in our hearts.
My own personal development comes from many mentors and members of the community. In a way, I continue to learn from both the mentors and protégés in the GIT program. I hope that collectively we can make a great impact on those around us and help shape the next generation of girls, and the next version of ourselves.
I truly thank you all for your commitment to Girls in Technology. Let’s make 2015-2016 STEMtastic!
