My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Getmagic Corporation, San Jose, CA, USA
Before getting started with the MAGIC program, I was always really interested in computing and STEM, but I never really knew how to get started. With the help of MAGIC and my mentor, Sandra Harimoto, I learned about many different resources I could use to develop a greater understanding in different computing languages. This really helped me learn how to incorporate all these different languages into ideas to solve problems. This wonderful experience helped me visualize how I could use STEM to solve ongoing problems around me and helped me realize that this would be an amazing career for me in the future.
My mentor, Sandra Harimoto, was a great influence. She is a standing symbol of what I could be, or do in the future with a career in STEM. She helped guide me through the experience understanding my interests. Most of all, she was always there, always open to answering questions at any time, always patient with me during times of difficulty, and always ready to meet with me every Sunday for several hours. This leaves me very thankful for the MAGIC, and how it has helped me greatly. I would greatly thank my mentor, Sandra Harimoto, and Ira Pramanick for giving me such a wonderful opportunity, and I would definitely recommend MAGIC to girls interested in STEM.
