      There are already a lot of boys in STEM. At university, I was the only girl on my course and very often at work, I’m the only female in the room. Which can be quite of putting at times, so we need more women in STEM to support each other. But the issue is younger females are just not considering it as a career – I want to tackle this issue and encourage more women to join in. It’s not as scary and as difficult as many females may think
