FIRST POST! L’Oréal For Women in Science Awards Ceremony

This past November, I had the pleasure of attending and being honored at the L’Oréal for Women in Science Awards Ceremony as one of five future female scientists by Teen Vogue and the National Girls Collaborative Project. I was inspired by so many brilliant women who are revolutionizing the world of science. At this event, I was inspired to encourage more girls to pursue careers in STEM. It is extremely important that more girls become involved in STEM. There are so many career paths within STEM. Unfortunately, there are significantly less women working in STEM careers. Science needs women to inspire the next generation of female scientists and break this gender barrier. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are such integral parts of today’s society. It is important to expose more girls to STEM and foster an early scientific interest in young girls.
