About

I am a rising high school Senior who has been fortunate enough to attend a school where the math opportunities are plentiful.


However, as I get older, there are fewer and fewer females in my math classes. I conducted research that shows that girls start to lose interest and confidence in math in middle school, especially in underrepresented schools. 


Addressing today's causes of underrepresentation of girls in higher math requires focusing on education. I want to help middle school girls develop confidence and a passion for math, like I have, and hopefully sustain it. 


So I created GLAM - Girls Learning Advanced Math. This past year, I brought my GLAM program to one school, and next year I will be bringing GLAM to more schools in New York City and hopefully expanding to other metropolitan cities as well.


GLAM is designed for middle school girls (targeting underrepresented schools) to teach them exciting, challenging math while being a safe place for girls to grow and be confident. GLAM runs from September to June and this year I will take each GLAM group to a local math contest.


These schools often don’t have funds for these types of programs. I am raising money to offset the contest fees and help support math and STEM programs for Girls in these schools. 

GLAM

GLAM is for middle school girls (currently targeting underrepresented schools in NYC) to teach them exciting, challenging math while being a safe place for girls to grow and be confident. Education is the great equalizer and I hope to increase gender fairness with GLAM. GLAM runs from September to June and this year I will take each GLAM group to a local math contest. These schools often don't have funds for these types of programs. I am raising money to offset the contest fees and to help support math and STEM programs for Girls in these schools.
