A GEM AFFAIR ~ Girls Engaging Mentors

Tuesday, December 17, 2019

 “The GEM Affair gave me an opportunity that I would not have had anywhere else. It opened my eyes to STEAM and a whole new world of possibilities for me to live in as a ‘female of the future.’ If you would have asked me four years ago if I would have seen myself involved in STEAM, I would have laughed and said, ‘absolutely not.’ That is primarily because I did not understand everything included in STEAM. The GEM Affair opened my eyes to a new world of possibilities. If it was not for the inspiring women that led the workshops, I may not have had the courage to join my robotics teams and act as the President during my senior year.”

– Kylee Chratsina, Union Area School District Graduate
