She taught herself math “late”… and now re-engineers the STEM ceiling

Claudia Galván, President of the Society of Women Engineers, is one of my favorite interviewees thus far.

She is a truly self-made woman. Fluent in multiple languages (including math), she is paving the way for more women to embrace careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

My favorite quote from the interview, which is over at The Economist’s Look Ahead site:

Often #aptitude is born of #attitude. You don’t have to be born with an innate ability for math and science to go into STEM.
