Hi, I’m Julia and I’ve been part of a team of greenlight for girls’ ambassadors since attending some amazing g4g days a few years ago At the events I realised how exciting and rewarding science could be. I’m now on my gap year doing a placement at Springboard Pro, a medical device engineering consultancy in Cambridge. And next year I will be starting my undergraduate degree in Bioengineering at Loughborough university in the UK.
So that’s me. Now, I’d like to introduce Talking STEM with the women that shape it, a greenlight for girls podcast series where I will be interviewing inspiring female scientists and engineers about their fields, careers and fascinations. They’ll also be sharing fun facts and giving their top tips to all aspiring scientists!
Yvonne Mason OBE, businesswoman
