Open Letter to Technovation Students: Kate Strong

This is the first in a series of open letters written to Technovation students by their supporters. People around the world are impressed by the young women who participate in Technovation and want to cheer you all on and offer some advice and words of encouragement!

Hi ladies,

You’re more than half way through your program with Iridescent Learning. 

I’ve been following your stories and ideas that you’re bringing to life. What you are doing is incredible: You are taking a stand for your own future and learning valuable skills in how to create the change you want to see in your life, your family, community and the world.

I am sure you’ve come across challenges and there have been times when you wanted to quit – maybe your team wasn’t communicating or working together, or your MVP (prototype) failed, or maybe you’re behind on deadlines. But, you didn’t quit and that shows me how dedicated you are to the project and to bettering yourself.

You have invested in the greatest thing ever: YOU!

Everything you are learning will be with you for the rest of your life. You are growing from the challenges, mistakes and the success you achieve.

Keep moving forward and persevering with your project because you are becoming a person who others see as driven, determined and an inspiration to help others to create something in their own lives.
