Go-getter Rosa Nemec, a Girl Scout volunteer committed to introducing girls to STEM-related fields, has been named the 2018 Emerging Leader of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).
Six years ago, Rosa started running the Year of the Girl Program, which introduces girls in grades 4-6 to STEM-related fields and encourages their interest in STEM disciplines, in addition to improving their self-esteem. The program now reaches seven underserved schools in the Cincinnati area and more than 80 girls. Rosa handles the logistics of the program.
We're so proud of Rosa and all of the work she does to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
