Hello everyone! Welcome to episode 64!!
My guest today is Kate Mwambo. She's born and based in Cameroon. In this episode, we learn that she is the youngest of 3, with 2 older brothers who are electrical engineers. Her dad, a Mathematician, would always encourage her to be an outstanding science student providing her the necessary support. Having received that support, Kate talks us through entering the field of petroleum technology at the undergraduate level, a predominantly male-dominated. Through pure will and determination, she made it and became the top student in her class and the entire school. Talk about inspiring!
She then explains to us what the field of petroleum engineering involves breaking down for us all. We then discuss the brand of women's clothing called STEMik clothing that she's recently started. The vision behind it and her overall goal to make "STEM fashionable." Lastly, we chat about her journey as a STEMI leader mentee and why mentorship, especially in STEM, is so important.
