This past weekend I had the opportunity to take a wonderfully fun and memorable trip with my daughter -- flying to Austin, TX for her to receive an award by the Society of Women Engineers at their annual conference (WE17). It was a great time, a huge blessing, she met some girls who are just like her :), and learned more about engineering and the career field.
She and 6 other girls were awarded global innovator awards for high school girls, my daughter's award particularly was for work done in rural areas (yes, we are certainly rural!). Especially sweet to me, due to the fact that she's homeschooled! No slacker here! :)
The girls got to attend a high school leadership academy, the WE17 Career Fair, meet many mentors, a great awards dinner, and so much more! (We parents basically just partied [haha] -- actually just hung out together, got to know one another, toured Austin, and had a great time with our girls and the female engineering community).
What a blessing! Looking forward to what the future will bring!
