“How Do They Do It?”
Join me next week as I moderate a panel discussion of working parents who have returned to school to complete an undergraduate degree or begin a graduate one.
Thursday, May 2, 2-3PM,
Redwood Shores Library Community Room.
Our panelists include:
Maria Sanchez, who is an artist and mother who also works full time as a research assistant at Stanford. Maria has three children, two who are young adults and one who is in 7th grade.
Genna Armanini, who is NDNU’s 2013 student commencement speaker, works full time in marketing for a health care company. She has a teenage stepdaughter, an eight year old son, and a four year old daughter.
Ysedra Mustiful is an Master’s student and community organizer who recently went to the White House representing her community’s position on gun control. She also works closely with a teen mentoring program. She has a ten year old daughter.
Also – just confirmed! – Dr Helen Marlo will also be joining us. She founded a program called Mentoring Moms to help new mothers deal with all the issues surrounding having and raising a new baby. She began this with a faculty grant from NDNU, is a Dorothy Stang faculty scholar, and was recently featured in the San Mateo Times.
