This is Emily Chen, and I was given the amazing opportunity to hear your story and advice Sunday, February 28th, 2016 and well as on Monday, February 29th, 2016. Finding a niche and focusing on a growing sector is really an interesting concept that was completely new to me and one that I will now keep in mind in my future endeavors. You brought to light alot of valid points and really left me with a renewed and enlightened mind after our workshops on Sunday! Your advice to also surround ourselves with a tribe of mentors and people who will lift us up in our pursuits is also one that I will seriously adhere to. I really learned alot from you and I was wondering if you would also accept me as your mentee especially as I pursue my passion in computer science in the coming years and create a business from it.

Currently, I am also the Director of Expansion of SecondGen, an entrepreneurial organization that aims to provide its members with the resources to develop their passion into a career. One of the new sections of SecondGen that I am creating is a mentorship between our passionate young women members and women business leaders. I completely understand that our mentors are extremely busy thus mentorship sessions will take place through online calls at your convenience. These mentorship sessions will be for passionate members who are in need of guidance at certain stages in the development of their passion and will not be regular sessions that you have to dedicate time to every week! We currently have expanded from the east coast to the west coast and into Lebanon and Zimbabwe (and are looking at expansion into France and Germany, and I hope into China too!).

I was wondering if being a mentor for secondGen is something you would be interested in? We do not begin the mentorships until next school semester!

After the conference, I found an opportunity to attend a Big Data Conference (this week), which is a field in computer science that I would like to understand and introduce myself to. I really also want to thank your daughter for being an inspiration to girls like me who want to pursue a career in computer science/software in the future, and for introducing me to coursera for classes in Big Data.

Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and really for being an amazing role model for young women like myself who aspire to become women leaders like you!

This is Emily Chen, and I really wanted to express my gratitude and say thank you for creating this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to network and learn from so many influential Women Entrepreneurs and Leaders. I took from the workshops so many pieces of advice that I have already implemented into my role as President/Founder of the Entrepreneurial Club at my school, and into my position as Director of Expansion of SecondGen, an international Entrepreneurial organization.

In addition, I have also reached out to many Women Leaders and am going to a Big Data Conference this week after speaking with Mrs. Fraser over email. The networks that I made in Florida, both with other young Women, and with Women Leaders are priceless, and it really would not have been possible if not for you.

I hope to keep in contact and update you as I continue in my journey towards further developing my passion in computer science.

I cannot thank you enough for the amazing opportunity to attend the conference last week in Miami. While I certainly had high expectations, I didn't dream of hearing from and personally talking with so many successful women who are so dedicated to making a difference for other women. They inspired me as an entrepreneur and as a person, and this experience would certainly not have been possible without you. Thank you again and I hope to stay in touch!
