Hello UIC!

This past weekend was the High School Regional Science Bowl. For me it started off a bit sour. On my way to pick up my niece I got a flat tire. Since I had to go to the event my cousin let me borrow his car to get to the first bus stop at Curie High School. We rode the school bus from Curie High School passing through Juarez Community Academy and Schurz High School to our final destination in Evanston. Thank you to Qetsiy’ah for the picture.

The volunteers being debriefed. The excitement was building.

It was nice to see so many alumni volunteer for the event. The competition rooms were full and the kids were all really excited. The day started off with the practice rounds and went on to the competition rounds. I took my niece who had a team from Curie. After the event she was so happy about it that she told me she would bring another team from Curie next year. It was overall a very fun and exhausting day and it was all worth it.

On the weekend, I also had the pleasure to see my Aunt, my cousin and my niece from Minnesota. I was very glad to see them; they are a delight to have around. Although they came to see my uncle who is in the hospital, we had the opportunity to share some time together while watching my older niece’s wedding. My aunt is absolutely the nicest woman I know but although she is a nice person, she is very strong and does not let anyone upset her or take advantage of her.

This Weekend is the” I AM WOMAN Conference” I was honored to be part of the planning committee. It is especially exciting because it is the first event of its kind. Usually when we go to conferences the workshops are on the most part led by men. In this conference all the workshops are led by women and the conference will be highly assisted by college and professional women. More details on this next week.

Thanks for reading this week!
