Marianne, our November g4g girl!

Hi everyone!

My name is Marianne, I am French, 22 years old, and I have been a g4g ambassador for 4 years now! It all started after I participated in the recording of a g4g on the Air radio show with Radio X (which you can listen to here, by the way!). Fast forward to four years later, and I am joining g4g Team for the month of November and December, and getting even more involved with all the behind-the-scene stuff. The highlight was definitely organizing our g4g Brussels Day, with a turnout of more than 300 girls! Although it was a lot of work, I was very proud to see it come to life and to know that I had helped make it happen.

I am a strong believer in equal chances for everyone, so I was naturally drawn to g4g’s cause. Although I did not graduate in a STEM field, I am naturally curious and like reading and learning about everything, including STEM-related topics such as sustainability, chemistry, coding…actually, one of my favorite thing about volunteering at a g4g event is that I always get to learn new things about STEM during the day!

Unfortunately, my time as part of the g4g Team is slowly coming to an end, as I am preparing myself to move to the Netherlands. There, I will continue the rest of my gap year with an internship. I will miss the wonderful Team that I had the privilege of working with for these past two months, but I will of course remain a g4g ambassador. I am looking forward to volunteer at more g4g events in the future!
