I was scrolling through Tumblr, as I usually do, when I came across the campaign #ScienceWoman. Amy Poehler’s website, smartgirls.com, teamed up with PBS Digital Studios to start promoting the need for women to pursue careers in the field of Science, Technology, and Mathematics. As soon as I watched the video, I knew I wanted to be involved in helping to promote it. I am an advocate for women and education. There is nothing that we cannot do if we stick together. Totally cliche, but I believe it nonetheless. Even though I am huge fan of Amy and (her partner in crime) Tina Fey, the reason I want to be involved is because I personally love technology from the software to programming it intrigues me. However, in undergrad I did not have the confidence to study it. I went with another love of mine English. A decision I do not regret at all.
It took years of self-discovery (meaning ups and downs) for me to figure out that I can do it. I can get a degree in Technology. Flying with an open heart and an eager mind to learn, if I fail at least I know that I tried. My hope is that it does not take a young girl or young woman as long as it took me to dive in. I hope that they have the courage to go in full force, fear and all. If you wish to help go to: http://amysmartgirls.com/2015/02/sciencewoman/
