Scholar Finds Refuge and Sets Career Goals

Growing up in a violent and traumatic environment, China constantly saw gang activity around her neighborhood. Coming from a family whose traditional values placed little emphasis on women pursuing college degrees, China’s future was limited, but she knew she wanted more. 

At Girls Inc., China got more of what she was searching for and a refuge from the gangs that she was too familiar with seeing. Here, she was exposed to Eureka!, a multi-year Girls Inc. program that combines sports with personal development and culminates with STEM concentrations on college campuses. Through this experience, China not only discovered her love of anatomy and biology, but the gender gaps that exist in STEM professions. China took the immersive introduction that she received through Eureka! and pursued advanced coursework in school, which are helping to inform China of the college she attends and the field of medicine she chooses to pursue. 

Today, she is a $20,000 Girls Inc. National Scholar recipient and an aspiring ER physician. As a rising high school senior, China knows she wants to pursue medicine and to take her training back to her community. 

“I want to come back and take care of my community. It is my home, and I want to make my home better.”

We can't wait to see everything you'll achieve, China!

A Summer of STEM at Girls Inc. Affiliates

Girls Inc. girls immersed themselves in a variety of STEM-focused activities this summer, ranging from farming to coding. Here’s a look at what some affiliates did to keep their girls active and engaged throughout the hot months.

In Memphis, girls learned about civic engagement and social entrepreneurship by working on a farm. Together, girls planted, harvested and sold over 20 varieties of vegetables. Watch the girls describe their experiences on the farm and what they learned about financial literacy and budgeting. 

As part of Eureka!, girls in Portland, OR visited Vestas, a LEED Platinum building, and learned about architecture from female engineers. They built mock wind turbines, toured an eco-roof and participated in STEM speed networking led by women engineers.  

Girls Inc. of Long Island joined a coding immersion program hosted at Dowling College where they learned the basics of computer science though Lego robotics. Take a look at the girls coding in action.
