Awesome women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) fields!

Edit (3/27/15): “Where’s Marie Curie?! Where’s Ada Lovelace?! Where’s etc.”

5 women who have inspired and influenced me throughout the years.

Eugenie Grey, an Asian fashion blogger, taught me to love my Asian heritage and showed me that Asian women can be as beautiful as anyone else.

Mary Lambert, a gay plus sized singer/songwriter and poet, taught me to love my body, and that I should never change who I am for someone else.

Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani human rights activist and recipient of the Nobel peace prize at 17, taught me to stand up for what I believe in.

Katniss Everdeen, a fiction character created by Suzanne Collins, taught me to be brave and to challenge what is wrong with society even against all odds, and to love unconditionally (not Peeta or Gale. Prim.).

Mae C. Jemison, the first black astronaut to go to space, taught me that anything is possible if you work hard.

Who inspires you?
