Episode Description

As part of our Operation Disaster Relief Outreach Program, Express Yourself! continues to feature Super Smart Sundays. Tech industry jobs are growing fast, offering great pay, career growth, and learning opportunities. Women of color, sadly, have not been able to fully participate in this boom. Women of Color in Tech is an indispensable resource for building a rewarding future in tech. Host Siri Phaneendra interviews author Susanne Tedrick about her practical guide that will help women develop the blend of knowledge and skills needed for getting into tech--and staying there. Siri discusses her start-up, drawmylove.com, a company that allows people to create physical, short-form books, professionally printed. In segment three, a new reporter, Andrea Smith, joins the STAR Team with her segment, In the Spotlight. She discusses the role social media plays on teen’s mental health in modern times. She contends that even though we are technically more connected, we are far apart.
