In episode four, we take a very different turn. Jacqueline Means is Delaware’s “STEM Queen.” Her story – and her passion – are changing lives and lifting girls to stronger futures.
And she is a true believer in the possibilities of Delaware. “I would say my story as a Delawarean, is one of a dreamer. I, over five years ago, was just a young girl who dreamt of hanging out with other girls and making slime with them and maybe even a little bit of ice cream… That idea just snowballed into this Woman to Urban STEM Initiative. Oh, we’re not only going to do experiments, we’re going to have speakers as well, and a free lunch and an anti-bullying demonstration and just really pack the day full of positivity for these young girls who don’t always get to have all this positivity in their life, like other girls living just one or two zip codes away from them. I would say that Delaware is definitely somewhere where you can make things happen.”
This interview will make you smile, will make you proud for this powerful young woman, and will give you renewed hope for the possibilities of Delaware. Listen here.
