Our “GoEnnounce Yourself” Scholarship, sponsored by Upromise, awards one student $500 each month! This award goes to a student who’s doing a great job showcasing who he/she is, by sharing school related e-nnouncement updates with Followers on their GoEnnounce Student Page. We are happy to e-nnounce our February winner…Melanie Jane Pascual!
Melanie Jane Pascual is a senior AP scholar at KIPP King Collegiate High School. Her favorite subject is computer science, and she hopes to be able to use it for social justice as an advocate for women in technology and animal rights. Melanie is the founder of CodeHS, Cupet, and A World With Animals. Already service oriented, she volunteers at her church, Salem Lutheran Senior Home, and with many animal organizations. In 2012, she won Top Student of Speech and Composit, and was a national runner up and affiliate award recipient for the 2014 National Center for Women and Information Technology. Not only a community service oriented all-star student, she’s also a great athlete and has been named All League Basketball First Team for 2012, 2013 & 2014!
Just in February, Melanie used her Student Page to e-nnounce her acceptance to both the IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference and Django Girls conference in Montreal to attend PyCon! She was awarded a scholarship to attend a Tech Summit in San Francisco and showcased becoming a finalist for the AXA Achievement Community Scholarship. She also shared a special opportunity to spend a day at the Twitter headquarters with her Girls Who Code mentor. This sparked an interest to begin taking international relations courses in college! If that’s not enough, she shared another varsity basketball team win for her undefeated team!
