Hi everyone, I'm Liesel Vaidya the social media chair for UB Scientista and I received the AnitaB.org scholarship to attend the Grace Hopper conference in 2017. GHC was the most empowering event I've ever attended in my career. Being surrounded by 18,000 female technologists from around the globe and having the opportunity to interact with some of the most influential women in technology was amazinggg! GHC also has the largest career fair, which is really helpful for anyone l...ooking for internships, jobs or even grad schools. All in all, GHC will easily become one of the most memorable events you've experienced and you will leave the conference with an abundance of inspiration.
The Anita Borg scholarship covers all costs for the conference, a stipend and a super cool badge that says you're an official scholar! You will also get to attend the scholars only dinner/networking event.
