It has allowed me to connect with Mentees and fellow Mentors from around the globe so that we can share our experiences of being women in engineering, science and technology. I will carry these experiences with me during my career. Thank you @NYASciences and @Arconic_Fdn https://t.co/I1Hbivjfu9— STEM (@AF_Redditch) July 26, 2019
