In our eNewsletter, we like to share student stories and testimonials, and this season’s comes from Jenelle, one of our summer students. She sent us this in an email earlier this fall:
“I just wanted to take the time out to say thank you again for the wonderful experience at STEM from dance. I learned a lot the past two years at this program. Last year was rough for me but we grew a bond and I had so much fun performing and showcasing our inventions that I just had to join again….This program really opened my eyes to the world of STEM. When people would talk to me about joining the STEM field, I would tell them no because I thought I wouldn’t be successful at it.
I am really grateful for my experience and I would most likely join next summer too…Thanks for my two great summers at this program.”
Today, December 1st, 2015 is #GivingTuesday.
Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Celebrate #GivingTuesday this year by supporting STEM From Dance. Visit www.stemfromdance.org/support to give.
