Girls Empowerment S.T.E.M Initiative
A Peacemaking Project by Jacqueline M.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Jacqueline’s main focus is bringing STEM to the underprivileged girls of Wilmington, and figuring out more ways to inspire girls to get actively involved in science, technology, engineering, and math. She recognizes that too few women are in STEM fields. To get more girls interested, Jacqueline hosts Girls Empowerment STEM events on a regular basis. She uses these events as a way to get girls interested in STEM at an early age by doing hands-on experiments that provide them with a real idea of what STEM is like and a new motivation to learn more. The event will include a anti-cyberbullying talk, healthy eating discussions, and ways to give back to your community to make it a better place. She will also have empowering female speakers to speak to the girls to reinforce the message that girls can do anything. She wants to showcase women working in the sciences and encourage young girls to defy stereotypes.
