Merck And Her Campus Ask College-Aged Women To Take The Pledge To Plan It Forward For Their Futures By Evaluating How Today's Decisions Can Affect Tomorrow

"I am so fortunate that every day I can wake up and do what I love," said Tammy Tibbetts, founder and president of She's the First.  "Although I could have never predicted even five years ago being where I am today, higher education was always a part of my plan and I have devoted my career to helping young women gain access to education.  When girls have a solid plan in place with a good foundation, they can dream big and take small steps each day to unlock their unlimited potential."

Merck encourages all women to kick-start a plan for their future at the Plan It Forward section of, and to ask themselves if their plan includes starting a family.  At, young women can find resources like the Course Creator, which helps them navigate the planning process and consider potential obstacles, next steps, and deadlines.  Accompanied by a worksheet to help craft their personal roadmap, young women can leave the site with a better idea of how to chart their course.
