Special thanks to PPLS for the lovely discussion that we had and for featuring me on Women’s History Month.
We held a discussion about the Social Action award, my time in Edinburgh and the need for diversity and interdisciplinarity in STEM education and with that in mind, this is the gist of our conversation.
“Getting out of my comfort zone was one of the toughest things that I had to do, but it has truly transformed me as a scientist, advocate and entrepreneur. I cannot imagine living a life that does not strive to unlock the power of possibilities one can have. I want young girls and women to not settle for something that others have set ahead of them without them. I want them to feel empowered, help empower others in all areas of social and professional life and never stop dreaming.”
