Shout Out Saturday: Joan Jungbin Lee

Shout Out Saturday: Joan Jungbin Lee

Shout Out Saturday is a series meant to highlight real and singular women and non-binary people, in a variety of lines of work, both ‘known’ and unknown, from across the country.

Joan Jungbin Lee joined the Electric Girls team in Aug 2018 and stepped into her current Executive Director role during the fall of 2020. Joan started her STEM journey as a rambunctious kid that took random household items apart for fun and continued on to study biomedical engineering and research during high school and college. Joan has worn many hats: managing scholarships and registration for all EG programs, jumpstarting the Family Advisory Board, and learning alongside resilient and bright Electric Girls. Joan is excited to continue growing the Electric Girls community of lifelong learners and supporters.

Shout Out Saturday: Zoe Boekbinder

Shout Out Saturday: Zoe Boekbinder

Shout Out Saturday is a series meant to highlight real and singular women and non-binary people, in a variety of lines of work, both ‘known’ and unknown, from across the country.

Nomadic at heart and a creator at their core, Zoe Boekbinder (they/them) was born on a farm into a family of four children. While music wasn't very present in their upbringing, Boekbinder recalls some of their first memories as making up songs. For them, music is as natural and as necessary as breath, and the way they engage as an activist. Boekbinder was raised, in part, by their grandfather — a Holocaust survivor. Having survived the horrific, prejudiced violence of his past, he instilled in Boekbinder a deep belief in justice. Songwriting has become their resistance language.

Shout Out Saturday is a series meant to highlight real and singular women and non-binary people, in a variety of lines of work, both ‘known’ and unknown, from across the country.

Chelsea Van Voorhis is an artist and woodworker that creates home goods, sculpture, and fashion forward wearable art using wood veneer. Every piece she makes is completely one-of-a-kind and a direct reflection of her emotions when it is made, often including political and social commentary. After spending 10 years in the fashion industry in New York City she moved to Maine to study furniture design. Chelsea uses traditional woodworking techniques to create very non-traditional art.
