Diana Vazquez, a DEEP student this summer, has launched STEM Kenada, an organization that connects female high school students in Canada with female students in Kenya through discussions on science, technology, engineering and math.
“On my trip to Kenya I witnessed the true power of education,” says Diana. “It transforms people entirely. Studies show that in countries where more women hold jobs in STEM fields, there are better economic, social and political opportunities for women. STEM Kenada is my contribution, to improve education for girls around the world.”
