In 2019, participants of the 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures program were invited to take part in the Superheroes of STEM essay contest, which asked them to share stories about modern-day women in STEM who inspire them. Read their essays and watch their videos.
Women in STEM have been underrepresented for as long as I can remember. If we incorporate more women in media, if we talk more about girls in STEM, I think that that’s the type of diversity that we need in order to grow, as not only people but to develop our world as a whole.
It’s important to tell these stories … To be able to provide role models to the next future generations, to show that women are impacting the STEM industries.
Just to be able to study the universe around us at a macro and micro level … I find super amazing.
Science is everywhere, it’s all around us, that’s why I want to discover more.
Science is a systematic way of satisfying curiosities and finding ways and solutions that could impact and help millions of people all over the world.
