- I think GoldieBlox are a great start to reversing the trend of female under-representation in STEM fields. However, it doesn’t seem like enough. We still have the problem of women dropping out of STEM fields, so the problem isn’t just getting them interested in them. We need to address the working conditions and see what factors are at play here and what we can do to fix them. They are a brand new company and are still working on some things, so I am curious to find out how they will manage maintenance and recycling in the future, or if they even have a plan in place.
- My greatest dreams….well…I want to see the world. You name it, I want to see it. One of my biggest goals in life is to travel the world and see as many places as humanly and financially possible. So far, I haven’t got very far on my list, but I have big plans for my future. I also want to get out of student loan debt, become a nurse practitioner, raise a family and change the world. Like many others, I want to make a difference in the world. I think one of the ways I can do this is by working with kids. I currently work at a psychiatric treatment facility and it is the most rewarding and challenging job I’ve ever had and I can’t wait to see what else is out there for me later on!
