As a society, what brings us together is continued growth and development. It’s in the process toward our goals where we find the sense of confidence and belonging that we need as humans.
Today’s guest, Sharon Jones, shares how we can find hope in the continuous work and celebration of education. In her work, she especially sees the impact of this on young girls interested in STEM.
