"Math is very important in my field. Every class I've taken uses math in some way, whether that's running statistical analysis for research papers or solving a circuit or coding on a systems level" - Lily

“Don’t doubt yourself or be scared to fail. A lot of life is failing, and failing is an opportunity to learn and strengthen what you know.” - Lily

“Don’t feel pressured to do anything just because the people around you are doing that thing.” - Claire

“Be more careful about the process of solving a problem, not the outcome.” - Claire

“Embracing humanity classes and leadership positions can also help you succeed in STEM.” - Isabelle

“If you have general curiosity about certain things, don’t be afraid to ask others.” - Prabhleen

“On college applications, they often want to see you already involved deeply in your subject, so I would look for opportunities and programs in which you can learn and contribute.” - Victoria

“Make connections. Connections are everything, especially in a college space.” - Abigail
