I agree that I have watched the entire video. *
In a few sentences, please describe the main points of your story that you plan to share with girls. *
For example: "Growing up, I never imagined myself in a STEM career. My parents didn't attend college and both work blue collar jobs, so I always assumed I would end up working hospitality or some other "traditional" low-paying job. I took a coding class in high school because my friends were enrolled, and immediately fell in love! I'm so glad I took that chance; it changed my life! College wasn't easy and I didn't get the best grades, but I kept working at it and got an amazing job right after graduation."
