What inspired you to explore STEM when you were young?
My natural wonder of the world and my parents inspired me to pursue STEM. My earliest memories are of watching my father code and having an urge to learn how to type as fast as him. My mother always encouraged me to play outside and help her in the garden. I loved watching butterflies hatch during the summer and was infinitely curious about nature..
What do you enjoy most about what you do in your STEM career?
I enjoy learning something new every single day! There is always exciting information coming out and i love to be at the forefront of it. I genuinely love teaching and helping other people. It makes me feel good to know that i am impacting and changing the world for the better. It motivates me to work with other people who love what they do too!
