THANKS TO OUR FOOD SPONSOR @bamiyannyc:
What's a Tweetup?!
During this event, we will be Tweeting using the hash tag #CelebrateSTF, just as we have at our past Tweetups. Even if you are not in NYC, you can participate in the discussion by following #CelebrateSTF tweets. You can even tweet in your own questions and comments, which our event leaders will share with our attendees.
What's the Goal?
This particular event is not a fundraiser. It's a networking and educational opportunity intended to build camaraderie and fuel the creativity of young women (and men!) who want to change the world -- by educating girls. We highlight social media and storytelling as a way to create social change.
