Laura, a full time metallurgist
The “cycle” initiative is a way for me to celebrate the way I live my life each day. And it’s about celebrating self-sufficient, independent women. I am an independent woman. I can change a tire, do basic electrical wiring and accomplish most household maintenance. I persevered through engineering school when others doubted me. I landed my current metallurgist job using my major in a male dominated field. How empowering is that!
I want women and especially young girls to grow up knowing they too can become a self-sufficient, independent and confident woman. It is a powerful feeling to know you can depend on yourself and work in any vocation.
