We participated in TYWLS “Cool Women, Hot Jobs” Career Day series with the truly awesome girls from TYWLS in Jamaica, Queens on Tuesday, March 5th.
TYWLS empower young women to achieve their higher education dreams and to fulfill their learning and leadership potential. The girls, grades 6 through 12 were enthusiastic, articulate and well prepared.
We were excited to tell our stories, from high school and college to our book writing journey. The many volunteers shared details about their own daily activities, responsibilities and challenges, the education and skills needed to succeed in their diverse fields, career paths, and interesting aspects about their professions. The girls were eager to ask questions and share their aspirations for the future. It was a joy to spend the morning with such outstanding young women.
