What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
IWD is an opportunity to not only celebrate achievements of women throughout history but to simultaneously increase awareness of the modern day issues women still face. Discussion and media coverage of the day raises awareness of this to both men and women, encouraging a more active movement.
Which women are you inspired by?
Women in history such as Florence Nightingale, achieving incredible feats despite living in a society with fewer opportunities presented to them.
What role or impact would you like to play in relation to women's rights, today?
I would like to play a role in educating younger generations of women, such as those in school, of the fascinating field of STEM. We need to inform more young girls on the vast range of occupations available to them.
What are your future aspirations?
I aspire to be involved in the field of medicine, either as a surgeon or neurologist.
