We just came back from an exciting trip to the United Nations! Wow. Wow. Wow.
Greg and Kamea, because of STEAMTeam 5, were invited to the United Nations by the executive director, HRH Science Princess Dr. Nisreen El-Hashemite of RASIT.org, to speak about the “how and why” our book, STEAMTeam 5: The Beginning, came to be.
While there, we celebrated the third annual International Day for Women and Girls in Science! ❤️🙌🏼
Here is the video featuring Greg on the United Nations website. (Click link and it will start where Greg speaks at 1:50:30.)
It was perhaps one of the most amazing things we’ve done.
We went there not really knowing what to expect, other than the awesomeness of actually speaking at the UN in New York. What we experienced went far beyond. It was a trip that my family will remember forever.

Kamea, at 7 years old, went around meeting various women scientists from all over the world, including Syrian refugee women engineers, plus multiple Ambassadors, sharing her excitement for equality of women in science. She went up to people, introducing herself, giving away STEAMTeam 5: The Beginning books, STEAMTeam 5 friendship bracelets, and her business cards.
Yes, she has business cards with her email address on them and the title Science Princess. Networking begins now.
We were blown away at the energy and inspiration flowing through the whole thing. It moved my soul as I took it all in.
