I am a senior development manager for a tech company. I have a passion for exposing young women to potential careers in tech and STEM. They often know about the more popular science based jobs like engineers, doctors, and veterinarians, and the paths to those careers are fairly straightforward. The reality is there are many many more possible STEM jobs, but when you are in high school it can be very hard to see that.
I have shared my story for two reasons
1) To show high school students one possible path to a job in tech.
2) To show you don’t have to have it all figured out in high school.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could share this story to get it in front of as many young women as possible.
