Desiree was an intern for GMM during the 2010-2011 season and emcee'd our 2011 Video Showcase. She was also Girls Making Media’s Volunteer News Coordinator for the 2009-2011 seasons. You can find her awesome news posts on our Facebook page. She participated in session five (2008-2009) making two PSA’s; “I believe in Me”, and “Let Constance McMillen take her girlfriend to prom!”. Her passion is anything and everything that has to do with inspiring women and girls.
Throughout high school she chaired the Young Women’s Leadership group at the Pima/Tucson Women’s Commission, and was a Girl Talk leader, mentoring middle school girls. She believes every girl has something to tell to the world, and that can be achieved through social media outlets all around us! When spider webs unite they can tie up a lion! :)
