AiC Members - In The News! (December 2016 #1)
- “Proud of our Champions of Change -- folks who prove that, here in America, there's no more powerful role than that of citizen.” // President Obama celebrated the Champions of Change last week, including many of our AiC Community Members. We are proud of all the great work that they do!
- “Being a Black Muslim woman, my narrative has always been reflected in politics, but not necessarily in the way that I’d like it to be. I got really into politics and picked it up as a minor. Then, I figured that there was a way I could combine the two when I attended Grace Hopper for the first time last year, last October.” // AiC Community Member Fadumo Osman talked with People of Color In Tech about how she is meshing politics and computer science to take control of her narrative and story.
- “I thought of this idea of how to protect people’s rights, but also, at the same time, protect people in public areas.” // AiC Community Member Nastasia Efremkina was moved after the events in Sandy Hook to create a firearm tracker as a way to prevent similar tragedies. She received the patent for it earlier this year. Inspiring work, Anastasia!
- What does 85-year-old Stan Jones, a senior principal communications engineer, have in common with 16-year-old Kavya Kopparapu, a high school biomedical statistical research intern and AiC Community Member? More than you might think.
- Congratulations to AiC Community Members Lauren Thomas and Kimberly Do on being selected as winners in the 2016 National STEM Video Game Challenge!
