I was a co-organizer for the 12th Annual Sonia Kovalevsky Day hosted by the University of Iowa's Department of Mathematics. Sonia Kovalevsky was a renowned 19th century mathematician, writer, and women's rights activist. I developed a theme and t-shirt design for this event: Math Girls R.O.C.K! High school females, their educators, and parents and/or guardians spent a day on campus learning about different types of math Research, Opportunities they can take advantage of as high school students, different Career paths in mathematics, and general math Knowledge. It took place on Saturday March 4, 2017. Check out the event flyer here.
I was involved with last year's SK Day as a co-organizer of the career panel session. We invited speakers from surrounding academic and professional communities and moderated a discussion about the different ways math can shape your career. In 2011 I volunteered for SK Day at the University of Kentucky where I helped with an origami station, jeopardy game, assisted with lunch, and general set up and take down.
