Hello! I am a 17 year-old form Croatia, currently finishing high-school and an aspiring IT/STEM student. My biggest passion is computer science and I am working to pursue a career in it one day.
I am also a participant in the New York Academy of Science's global program called 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures, which connects promising young women in STEM with mentors all over the world. The program is having a Global STEM Alliance Summit in New York this year, dedicated to building a global community of STEM leaders. There we will have a great opportunity for self-growth and enrichment trough networking, communication, meeting STEM professionals, learning about career possibilities, etc., which will also be very useful for our further career development.
The problem is that I need to pay for the trip myself, and it is far away and therefore very expensive, especially for the standards of my home country. Any donation that could help me reach my goal is benefitial and very appreciated, as it is not only a short-term, but a long-term investment.
If you have any further questions or things that need explaining, you can contact me at [email protected]
