Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders: VirTutor Online’s Commitment to Female Empowerment
In a rapidly evolving world, nurturing the youth to unlock their true potential stands as a fundamental goal. VirTutor Online, your dedicated partner in online education, recently had the privilege of participating in the Standard Chartered Girls Summit held this month. The summit served as an extraordinary platform for our CEO, Laura Pepera, to share her entrepreneurial journey and valuable insights. The event, featuring discussions with other accomplished women excelling in their respective fields, also provided an invaluable opportunity to connect with young girls aged 14 to 18, focusing on encouraging both their personal growth and academic excellence.
Nurturing Aspirations at the Standard Chartered Girls Summit
At VirTutor Online, our commitment to female empowerment isn’t just a tagline; it’s the very core of our ethos. Attending the Standard Chartered Girls Summit is a resounding testament to our dedication to shaping the future. It’s an event where leading female figures from diverse industries come together to inspire, mentor, and empower young girls, fuelling their ambitions and self-belief. Females within the fields of Engineering, Pharmaceutical Sciences, the Civil Service, and a few other industries shared the highlights of their journeys in order to motivate, inspire, and provide these young ladies with key advice on how to excel within their fields.
CEO’s Insightful Journey
Our CEO, Laura Pepera, was honored to be invited as a panelist at the summit, where she shared her entrepreneurial journey. Her personal path to success, marked by both challenges and triumphs, served as an inspiration to the young girls in attendance. With a background in Biochemistry and Clinical Pharmacology, she thoroughly enjoyed interacting with these ladies in STEM and made sure to remind them of the importance of exploring the range of different career paths that science can lead you to. It is often thought that all scientists either end up doing research or in a laboratory. This misconception prevents young individuals from really looking into the range of different job opportunities that science can provide them with. Laura highlighted the importance of perseverance, passion, and the art of seizing opportunities as they arise.
A Platform for Inspirational Stories
The summit unfolded as a melting pot of inspirational stories shared by accomplished women from various fields. We were captivated by these narratives, which showcased the boundless potential residing in women worldwide. These stories perfectly align with our vision at VirTutor Online, emphasizing that anyone, irrespective of gender, can attain their dreams through determination and hard work. As the goal of VirTutor Online is to build a network of students and tutors, able to discuss their ideas and gain new perspectives, we will soon be launching our new Tutor/Student Forum where we will engage in captivating conversations that will challenge our current way of thinking.
Interacting with the Future Leaders
One of the most gratifying aspects of the summit was the opportunity to engage with girls aged 14 to 18. At VirTutor Online, we are staunch believers in nurturing the dreams of the youth as they hold the key to a brighter future. Our team was thrilled to participate in conversations, share experiences, and provide guidance to these bright young minds. These conversations with the students also provided us with key insight into the support we can provide the youth with in order for them to achieve their dreams.
Building Scientific Devices in 30 Minutes
The event kicked off by having the girls display their scientific devices, which they could construct in just 30 minutes. Although it was challenging to create some of the devices at the beginning, witnessing their creativity and problem-solving skills in action was truly remarkable. Initiatives like this not only foster scientific curiosity but also highlight the power of hands-on learning, a principle we wholeheartedly embrace at VirTutor Online.
Beyond Academics: Personal Growth Matters
At VirTutor Online, our commitment extends far beyond the pursuit of academic excellence. We recognize that genuine empowerment hinges upon nurturing personal growth and development. Our lessons transcend traditional academic boundaries; they are a journey of self-discovery that encourages our students to unlock their unique potential.
Critical Thinking and Interactive Learning
Within our virtual classrooms, we diligently promote critical thinking through interactive sessions. We firmly believe that education is not just about the rote memorization of facts but about comprehending concepts, analyzing information, and nurturing the ability to think critically. Through engaging discussions, complex problem-solving, and real-world applications, our students acquire the skills that will serve them effectively throughout their lives.
