To help our blog run smoothly we put a call out for young writers whom are interested in either STEM and or music, Suize is one of them. Suzie will be writing as our UK technology correspondent. Needless to say we are very excited to read her articles.
So who is Suzie? We’ve asked our new authors to answers a few questions to introduce themselves.
What is your favourite STEM subject?
Technology, definitely. I could write code for days.
Why do you think the gender gap in STEM needs to close?
Because it’s lonely out here! On a more serious note, there is so much talent we as a society are missing out on because girls aren’t led to the same opportunities in STEM. If I hadn’t been drawn to computing by a driven and encouraging female computer science teacher, it’s unlikely I would have taken the subject. There is no good reason for fewer women to take up an interest in computer science.
Do you have a role model? If so whom?
I don’t have a role model per se – I’m really lucky to be surrounded by inspirational women in tech. I do think that Vi Hart, Sue Black, and Ciara Judge are all wonderfully clever and motivating people.
What do you work as / study?
I am studying maths, further maths, computer science, and English literature, with a view to read computing and philosophy at university.
Can you describe yourself in 6 words?
Motivated, competitive, enthusiastic, feminist, unconventional.
