Hey! My name is Valerie and I am a 23 year old graduate student studying mechanical engineering. As a woman in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) world, it can be difficult sometimes to relate our interests in the scientific and technical world with our interests in the arts, style, design, fashion, beauty, etc. I decided it would be fun to create a blog/website about my varying interests which include all of the above and more! I hope that this will help to somewhat break the stereotype of a female engineer as well as break down some stereotypical gender roles in the process. I’m definitely someone who can get her hands dirty in an engineering project but then go get her nails done! If you’re interested in what I have to say, check out my posts and share them along. Thanks!
