Top STEM Resources for Young Girls

Jobs under the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) are going to dominate the career market in the future. Smithsonian Science Education Center’s 2013 study revealed that by 2020, existing work opportunities under this field will increase up to 23%, out-earning occupations in the non-STEM field from 12% to 30%. Unfortunately, despite global equality in most countries, we’re still experiencing a widespread STEM gender divide, where females are underrepresented and/or discouraged to join in this field.Here at Intel For Change, we believe that an educated girl can change the world. If they are encouraged to study and specialize in this field at an early age, they will later on have the opportunity to join the competitive industries under the STEM umbrella and contribute their innovative ideas and solutions. For this entry, we will highlight the…See More

Day 6: Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds, and Very Brave Girls

I have been impressed with all of the Power Up participants since the day I met them. I admire their energy and passion for learning. I envy their ability to balance being serious and engaged in deep conversation with being goofy and playing games, a balance I find difficult to maintain as I’ve gotten older. I love how imaginative the students are, each creating her own unique masterpiece when we work on art projects.But perhaps what I admire most about the Power Up girls is how brave they are to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. As a twenty-two year old girls’ empowerment mentor and crisis hotline volunteer, there are days when I feel too afraid to share with others what my mind and heart are really feeling.Like every week, the girls’ bravery and openness shined through during today’s session, which focused on all types of health – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The group discussed what makes them feel healthy and alive. One student walks around her…See More

The Girl Behind the Stats: Power Up Club Mentor Reflection

By: Tsahai CrawlleWhen you really think about it, statistics and facts do not matter. Although I can ramble on for days about how the rate of kids falling behind education wise is parallel with their family’s socio economic status by using numerical information from studies performed, it means nothing. Even though I can tell you that majority of elementary school girls feel inadequate and insecure with themselves and their bodies by pointing to a national poll taken, the information is still obsolete. And even if we were all to listen to some “expert” drone on and on about “statistical averages” that are supposed to sum up what we as women and girls face on a daily basis, none of it would make a lasting impression on any of us. Simply because numbers squeezed to fit neatly on a line graph cannot tell the story of the lives of girls.When you really think about it, statistics and facts do not matter.What matters to people are the people behind these statistics- the faces of the girls…See More

Butterflies Mean Many Things

Posted by Angela Zhou on March 26, 2014 at 12:20am 0 Comments

If there is something called a conference high, I have it. Every time I return home from a conference convening young leaders from various backgrounds, I am impassioned to change the world, more so than I had been before. If only that drive didn’t lose momentum over time, because I usually find myself sinking deeper and deeper into an abyss of Suits episodes and half-filled snack boxes.

Jokes aside, I really do appreciate the opportunity to represent causes I support at leadership…
