There are important moments, decisions, influences, mentors and circumstances that help to guide STEM career paths.
When we reflect back on our earliest thoughts of “what do I want to be when I grow up?”, and fast forward to where we are today, we are likely to see a curvy road – likely with some bumps along the way!
It’s important to talk about this with kids today – to normalize the conversation.
It’s normal to not know “what you want to be when you grow up”.
It’s normal to change your mind.
It can even be normal to chose a less traditional path.
I valued all of the experiences I have had along my career journey. They have all helped to shape and inform who I am today, and the work that I do.
EoT STEM Ambassadors have the opportunity to be one of the guiding lights along that path.
They can shine a light on what possible and, through their own stories, help kids too see a path to becoming the next generation of problem solvers and game changers!
