More Questions?

"Being around 27 other intelligent girls who shared my interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and the very supportive GirlBoss staff created such an empowering, welcoming, and inclusive environment. 

I really noticed a change in my attitude towards public speaking and self branding after graduating from this once in a lifetime experience. I graduated from this programme feeling empowered and confident.

I felt blessed to have met the GirlBoss team and the other incredible girls in the programme. I have made life long friends. "
