Campaign: To get more girls interested in a career in science, technology, engineering and maths

I did feel a bit of a nerd taking A Level sciences. But it was something I was really interested in doing and luckily enough I’m a stubborn redhead, so I wasn’t going to let anyone get in the way of me doing what I want to do.

 

I think it’s quite shocking that only 20% of the science-based workforce is female. In engineering it’s as low as 8%.

 

I’ve got a degree in neuroscience now, and I want girls and young women to think seriously about a STEM career. From my own experience I can tell them that it can be really rewarding and great fun.
