Why we did it
Meet our scholars
How you plan to make a positive impact on the world through a STEM career?
My journey in STEM is fueled by a desire to make a lasting impact on the world. Through my work in AI and healthcare, I aim to pioneer solutions that improve lives, inspire women to break barriers in technology, and contribute to a future where innovation and inclusivity go hand in hand.
The woman in tech who inspires you and why? What have you done or plan to do to become the next big name in the tech industry?
I was inspired by a TED talk by Danielle Feinberg, Pixar’s director of photography, and I have faith that if I find my unique passion, I could realize my achievement in the field of computing in my endeavors... With a passion for CS and OSS development, my ultimate goal is to cultivate a more inclusive and friendly environment for both learning and development in Tech.
What challenges do women in tech face? What solutions to these challenges can you propose and why?
I believe that instead of trying to change women and the way we interact with the workplace, we should be changing the workplace itself. This can be in the form of regular diversity training for managers, strict sexual-harassment human resources policies, workshops to interact with young girls in the community and ensuring that women aren’t alone in technical teams.
