Stemettes Co-Founder. Age 27.
- How did you get to where you are today?
I got to where I am today because I’ve always been interested in technology and saw a problem within the industry and wanted to solve it. One of the main reasons why I love technology and why I run Stemettes is because I’m a really creative person and technology allows me to be really creative. The second reason is because technology is all about solving problems and there are a lot of problems to be solved. Whether its huge problems like diseases that we have in the world or small problems like booking train tickets online, technology is really great at solving all of them.
- Please could you tell us a bit about Stemettes?
Stemettes is a social enterprise that is trying to inspire, support and encourage young women into STEM related fields. This could be anything from panel events or coding workshops to school trips. Everything that we run is always free, its always fun and there’s always food!
- What were you like at school?
At school I was as lovely as I am now… just not to my teachers!
- What advice would you give to your teenage self?
If I could go back I don’t think I’d give any advice to my teenage self. I have no regrets – everything happens for a reason and I wouldn’t do things any differently!
