“I hope to lead by example and show young girls, especially my 6-year-old daughter and girls from my community back home, that girls can do anything that boys can do when they are given an equal opportunity. Generations of women globally never had the chances that my daughter’s generation will have to engage in science, and I cherish all the women working in STEM now and before, who paved the way!”
