"You could be the king, but watch the queen conquer. - Nicki Minaj"
Originally from a small town in Kentucky, usually in Boston for university, and presently in Tanzania for an internship at a solar energy company. I'm studying computer science and computer engineering, starting year 4 of 5 in Fall 2018. I love to travel, cook, read, and bike. Ask me about my tattoo for a book recommendation and lesson in Kentucky mixology!
Very cool idea, OurSociety seems like a good project to democratize democracy and encourage clarity in our leaders. Does the site allow users to post public questions for the candidates? Can people view candidates' information without making an account or signing in? These might be ways to further enhance the candidates' accessibility to the public.
Great idea and cause! This is a great way to take advantage of social media and networks to promote worthy causes. Have you considered using it to also promote events and volunteer opportunities? I imagine out of the many people who are willing to promote an organization, many will also be willing to mobilize and contribute through their time and actions. It would go along with the idea of non-financial contributions and could bring much help to important causes :)
This is a great idea and important cause - it's so important that the mentors in the program are from similar backgrounds to the girls being mentored, it makes a bright future so much more realistic. Working with other NGOs and the private sector also opens great opportunities. I would especially emphasize the inclusion of experiential learning and community involvement, as this aspect empowers the girls with experience and perspective while also normalizing their presence and inclusion in professional settings. Well done!
