Best advice for next generation?

STEM needs the people-centric skills to thrive, the ability to be resilient, connect with others and collaboration. STEM industries exists at the end of the day to serve people be it the technology we create or the vaccine we discover. Girls are one step ahead because they tend to be more collaborative and open to exploring options. So know that what makes you a girl is the same thing that gives you the edge!
