GAN gave me a scholarship to attend the Smith Summer Science and Engineering Program (SSEP) and I’ve returned from Massachusetts. Thank you. It was really fun over there. I made friends with many people; especially with one girl, she’s from Uganda. I think that’s cool. So once again, thank you for providing me with the scholarship and the gift card for SSEP.

GAN gave me a scholarship to attend the Game Programming Workshop sponsored by DigiPen Institute of Technology and St. Philip’s Academy in Newark, New Jersey. I really learned a lot and got exposure to a whole new area. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

“I can honestly say that the Spectacles Camp (2010) helped me interact with girls from different cultures and learn more about math and science. This program is a great preparation for girls who are considering entering into this field.”

“I stopped and thought about my mother trying to get the money for me to go to the science camp at Wesleyan College. She made a lot of phone calls and tried come up with half of the money, [but] Girls Action Network came all the way through. GAN all the way!”

“I realized how fortunate I am and how much I take for granted. I went home with a feeling of accomplishment and gratitude [to] all those who gave. Thank you to the Episcopalian Church and to GAN for giving me the opportunity to serve others. I enjoyed the GAN Giving Back Service Day project and that experience has made me eager to volunteer again.”

“The [GAN Giving Back Service Day] project was time well spent. Service always affects me because I know I am giving something back. Outside of my responsibilities, it was great to connect with other GAN members and scholarship receipients.”
