GirlsTech Program Participants Visit Facebook

“Be the nerd!”: Facebook welcomed the participants of the GirlsTech program. As part of an hour and a half learning program, these young women had the opportunity to explore the Facebook offices and participate in discussions with Elena, a young engineer at Facebook, and Irene and Natalia, who hold executive positions in the company. These members of the Facebook Team were inspirational in their speeches, and encouraged the girls to continue their technological education in order to become the programmers and engineers of the future. All who participated left Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg’s lesson to “be the nerd” of their school, and become the next successful inventors.
