This year I decided to partcipate in the "Letter to my Young Self" project sponsored by the Science Club for Girls in Massachusetts.

 

Dear Becky (age 10),

You will go to a lot of interesting places that you cannot even imagine right now if you use your strengths and passions.

Instead of a New Year’s Resolution, leadership coach and teacher Ginny Wilson-Peters selects a word to focus on for the year.  It has become an annual tradition for her; this year I’ve decided to do the same.  My word for 2012 is passion.  I chose passion as my word for 2012, because I want refocus my time on my passions: controls and learning.

Mosaic of Memories Quilt Square

This year for the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is sponsoring a contest at WE11 (their annual conference) called the Mosaic of Memories Quilt. Each contestant was asked to submit an essay and a 6" x 6" quilt square illustrating their point of view as an engineer or SWE member. Each submission will be judged at this year's conference and the completed quilt will be on display at WE12. I was inspired to take advantage of the change to combine my crafty side with my engineering side.
