Since I was just in Austin visiting my daughter this article came up on my computer to share with my “new” family as well.
So happy Maryam received this! FIRST FOR A WOMAN IN MATH! I believe this is a breakthrough for all women in S.T.E.M. Aly, Marika, and Julia all advanced in their fields with Math/Economics, Biology/Science/Eco Safety/Regulations, and Computer Science / Mechanical Engineer/ Inventor.Yet only 9 percent of these fields are filled by women. I believe that my step-girls and my daughter have respect in their professions.They have contributed hugely to their communities. Marika undergrad Math, Grad school Econ (Stanford), currently Econ professor at University of Texas (Austin)…Julia. (Molecular Biology)…safety and regulations, worked GE international, now Auto desk SF, and Aly Mechanical Engineering/Computer Science ..works IBM/Management/ Inventor Austin. (All male dominated fields.)
Aly brought 150 female students from Middle schools in her area to learn about engineering at UC Merced, and was ambassador of engineering. All of these professions are wide open to women here in the US, unlike Maryam’s start which was much more difficult in Iran.
A huge thumbs up to all woman who stand side by side with their male classmates and co-workers making there mark on society and living fearless!
I added this paragraph for this article. Women of heart are the new leaders. We are the conscious evolution along side our beautiful male equals. Together we raise the vibration of our planet. Thank you to all Men and Women who give their gifts through their heart.
ROCK ON MY FRIENDS. Aly and I and friend this weekend in Austin
