DIANNA'S WORDS. OUR SHOES.
DIANNA TALKS SCIENCE, FEMALE ROLE MODELS AND DEFYING STEREOTYPES
I WANT TO EDUCATE AND EMPOWER GIRLS TO FOLLOW THEIR PASSION
I think there are a lot of really great initiatives to get women into STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, but that hasn’t always been the case. For so long, young women were not encouraged to get into the sciences.
I think the first thing we need to do is introduce girls to science, allow them to try experiments at home, encourage them to take a science class.
Early on I found out most of the viewers of my YouTube channel were men, and then it turns out some were dads watching the videos with their daughters. It was being a role model for parents, too, they’re like, “Oh, look, there’s this girl who does science.”
