Digitally Empower Girls in STEM With Me

About Your Initiative

STEM — science, technology, engineering, and math — are fields for boys.At least, that’s what I believed as a young girl, just as most girls do in Cameroon. But a woman can do the same job that a man does. It’s time to break those glass ceilings and make it easier for girls to take on male jobs.

I’m proof that it’s possible! I taught in a technical college for 13 years, where I saw how wide the gender gap is in STEM. In 2010 I created the Center for Youth Education and Economic Development, where I run programs to train and mentor girls in basic programming and other digital skills.

I am dedicated to inspiring girls early on so they know STEM is for them too.

Who is being impacted by my initiative?

2,000 girls and 500 women in the next 2 years.
