This past spring I had the great opportunity to work with 4 inspiring young girls as they signed up as a team for the Technovation Challenge competition. Just thinking back to the spring I get a little emotional, these girls were definitely the turning point in my Peace Corps service.
They made me a video and recently sent it to me. I’m humbled, these girls taught me a lot about the power of words — even when you think others are not listening… they are.
After this past spring I have gotten more involved in technology here in Moldova — GirlsGoIT camp, Europe Code Week, and now I’m currently working with a great team leading the way this year in coordinating Technovation Challenge, hoping to inspire more girls to try it and learn new skills in entrepreneurship and tech.
I am looking forward to seeing where life takes these amazing girls and look forward to working with them in the remainder part of my service here in Moldova.
