Welcome to Our New Young Women Ambassadors and Intern
In 2009 the first Young Women’s Advisory Team was formed in California. It began with two eighth-grade girls and one ninth- grader. Over the next three years, it expanded to a total of eight girls. They were very diverse with different cultures, races, ethnicities, and grades in school. These young women were from Orange and Riverside Counties, the Inland Empire, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Only two of them attended the same school.
We had a great time with great teamwork. Alexandra Hoang and Kelly Trinh, the first members of the Advisory Team continued throughout their college years at the University of California Berkeley. When Nashely Ruiz began her career she became a member of the Girls’ C.E.O. Connection™ Advisory Board. Alexandra and Kelly graduated in 2017.
I am so grateful for their time, advice, and support. In fact, Kelly and Alexandra became experts on interviewing well-known female entrepreneurs. They often reviewed chapters in my book, Realizing a Vision, Words of Wisdom for Young Female Entrepreneurs. Vivian Duong (Brown ’16) became proficient in writing blog posts. Vivian and Tammy Nyguen began taking part in the videotaped conversations. They were so enthusiastic about promoting the business and our Realizing a Vision Conference. You can watch their videos on our YouTube channel. One of my favorite promotional videos is the Teen Girls Want to be Part of Girls’ C.E.O. Connection.™ It’s at the opening of the channel’s page.
Thank you to all of you. I miss you and wish you all the best in your continued endeavors.
Meet the New Team
Our three highly qualified interns from Colorado University Boulder are members of the Theta Beta Chapter of Delta Delta Delta. I may be a little prejudice since that is the sorority I belonged to in college. They have helped the business in so many ways. It is hard to go over all the details. Madison (Maddie) Daniel and Claudia Dresdner are juniors in the Leeds School of Business. Maddie is our Marketing Manager and Claudia is our Social Media Marketing Manager.
Maegan Harris is a senior and began working with me her junior year. Maegan is the Research Assistant and also critiques the website, blog posts, and book chapters.
Welcome Dani Dresdner, Our Newest Young Ambassador
Dani Dresdner is a sophomore in high school and is Claudia’s sister. So excited to have her on the team. Dani brings diversity to our reach to the members of Generation Z high school girls. She’s from Highland Park, Illinois.
