What Difference Will You Make?

My aunt sent me another one of those forwarded emails that we so often ignore. But, since her emails seem to be carefully selected, I read it anyway. It was about a grocery store bagger named Johnny, and how he made a difference to everyone who came to his checkout line.

Now, this doesn't have anything to do with women or science and engineering. But it does inspire me to ask myself and all of you: how will we make a difference in the lives of women at Carleton, and girls who might consider studying here with us one day? From attending CU-WISE events to participating in outreach opportunities, there are so many ways we can touch the lives of those around us.

Here's the video.

Gail, thank you for this post. It has made me realize that even the little things count and that I should stop stressing over trying to change the world.
