Student resource fair held by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez shows kids resources in the Bronx and beyond

A student resource fair held at Lehman High School on Thursday informed kids about the many opportunities that are available to them in the Bronx and across the city and country.  
The gym at the school transformed into a hub of potential careers for aspiring students as groups from various fields encouraged the students to think about their future.  
Organizations including NASA, Girls Who Code, Stand Up To Violence, CUNY, SUNY Maritime College, and multiple New York state agencies handed out information about mentorships, internships and higher education opportunities available close to home. 
“We are so focused on getting diverse students into the tech space. We're really excited to share programming here for ninth to twelfth graders,” said a representative from Girls Who Code.  
The annual event was coordinated by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who says that events like this are essential to the future of New York City.  
“One of the most important things you can do is develop connection,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “Connection to each other and connection to the people in our community that are really trying to build community together.”
