GRACE HOPPER CELEBRATION 2016/7
Through this experience I haven't gained just my assigned sherpa but many others who I had the chance to network with, exchange tweets with and who are there when I need them for advice on which route to take. If you lack confidence in your own ability, are unsure of which direction to follow up after college or university and you are willing to complete and research the things your sherpa asks of you the benefits of the scheme are huge...take the opportunity and you will not regret becoming a Student to Stemette Sherpee.
"THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE I GAINED FROM MY SHERPA ARE INVALUABLE...I HAVE GROWN AS A PERSON SINCE THE START OF THE MENTORING PROGRAM"
"BY GRADUATION, I WAS FEELING SO MUCH MORE CONFIDENT. I WAS EVEN ABLE TO DO A SHORT TALK IN FRONT OF THE OTHER STEMETTES"
"MY SHERPA HAS BEEN SO SUPPORTIVE...HAVING A SHERPA IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING"
"I ACQUIRED A DEEPER INSIGHT ON WHAT IT'S LIKE TO HAVE A JOB IN COMPUTING SCIENCE...MY CONFIDENCE HAD ALSO BEEN GREATLY INCREASED"
"THIS PROGRAMME WAS INCREDIBLE AND ANYONE THINKING OF APPLYING DEFINITELY SHOULD...I HAVE GAINED NOT ONLY A SHERPA BUT A FRIEND"
