April is Donate Life Month!

I'm sure you all remember Section 36’s wonderful interview with Miss Vermont Julia Crane. During her visit, she discussed many things, including her platform of Organ Donation.

Since April is Donate Life Month, I thought it would be a wonderful time to mention that interview as a way to begin to learn about the benefits of organ and tissue donation.

I also know that Julia has several events planned this month celebrating Donate Life Month. So, I highly encourage you to find her on Instagram to make sure you don't miss out on anything she has planned.

You'll be glad you did.

Love Better

You remember Section 36's fantastic visit  with Miss Greater Rockville Sylvana Gonzalez, right? During the interview, she mentioned an upcoming Love Better event that she was excited to host. To go along with that, Sylvana will be expanding on the goal of the event...promoting the vow to Love Better. The best thing for you to do is to follow her on Instagram so you won't miss any of the updates. But here is her latest post, in her words. 

“Everyone deserves healthy relationships. The problem is that while we’ve all felt love, we’re never taught HOW to love. By learning what healthy relationships look like and practicing these skills in our lives, we can strengthen our relationships and teach others to do the same. Making the world a healthier place starts with you, and how you love in your relationships.” - A direct mission statement of the @join1love foundation

Over the last year I have come in contact with men and women alike who stand as survivors, voluntarily sharing their truths of their toxic experiences with domestic violence. As we approach the 
#LoveBetterGala this #May8 I will be sharing what statements were made in our relationships, that made us vow to #LoveBetter. In doing so we will shed light that domestic violence is not just physical - but emotionally, mentally and spiritually draining.

Like I said, an important topic that I'm glad Sylvana's bringing more attention. So, definitely go visit her Instagram to learn more. And if you have a story of your own to share, leave her a message (with her account, or right here in the comments). 

I know she'd love to hear from you.

Happy Engineers Week!

Yeah, I know. The week is almost over, so I’m a bit late. But, there’s a reason I decided to mention it today.

I hope you’ve all been enjoying the interviews I’ve been fortunate enough to conduct with Miss America (and other organizations) titleholders. I’ve always thought it was fun to talk to these baseball fans and see what they had to say. You may have noticed that many of them have platforms dealing with science and engineering, which is fantastic. One of them (at least) is even currently a civil engineer. Emily Mahana interviewed with me last year when she held the Miss Upstate New York crown, and talked about her platform getting girls interested in engineering. With Engineers Week this week, I thought it might be fun to expand on that. So, Emily was nice enough to create a video talking about Engineers Week and, especially, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day...which happens to be today! (I told you I had a reason.) So please watch Emily’s video below… View from Section 36: Emily Mahana shares her views on Engineers Week”!


I hope you enjoyed it. (Notice the logo in the background?) With any luck this will be the first in a series of “View from Section 36” videos. Gotta put that YouTube channel to work!
