Congratulations to Anna, an aspiring woman in science! Anna is now at MIT studying biochemistry with the goal of becoming a medical doctor focusing on research. Anna is one of our five Class of 2019 “100 by 100” Cambridge Business Community STEAM Scholarships awardees, excelling in and committed to science:
“I would like to become a researcher, particularly in the area of finding new cures for diseases. Another broader cause that I would like to help is increasing the diversity in scientific communities. In college I plan to volunteer to mentor students in middle school or high school in math and science. I know that I have been greatly influenced by the teachers and mentors I have had, particularly women in science. Their support has made me really interested in pursuing science and math as a career, and I want to pass some of the enthusiasm they gave to me on to other students, especially those who many not have had many opportunities to see the fun sides of math and science.”
Friends of CRLS‘s “100 by 100” Cambridge Business Community STEAM Scholarships are funded by generous, community-minded, forward-thinking business leaders around our city.
