Illuminate Durham

Hi everyone! My name is Stephanie Cheng and I am a Grade 9 student at University of Toronto Schools. Today, I had the pleasure to attend Illuminate x Durham’s regional conference. Here are my thoughts highlighting what I learned about leadership for youth in STEM.


We had a really interesting workshop on Impostor syndrome and how it affects the way that we view our own efforts and achievements. I also learned ways to be more confident in my skills.

I also learned how important it is to be part of the discussion as youth.


My favourite part of the workshops was how interactive they were.
