editor's letter At 12:30 AM, my sister calls me from the other room to dim her light. She's supposed to be sleeping since she has to get up early for work tomorrow, but she’s wide awake. So am I. I come over and lay next to her, the room dark, the diffuser on. She asks me, “So do you really like coding?”.  I wasn’t expecting that, but I immediately say

@girlgeniusmag

yes. Yes, I really like to code. I like finding ways to communicate with the computer and solving problems. I like taking game ideas in my head and implementing them. I like the logic behind it, but it gets kinda tough when there are not many people to help you. Not

@girlgeniusmag

many people, no females, who are interested in what you are doing. Not many people who are exposed to the concepts you have grown to love. But the fact of the matter is that there are people who have

like-minded interests. There are millions of females passionate about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), but are all separated by miles and miles. The status quo of women in STEAM is lonely and Girl Genius Magazine aims to change that by connecting all girls interested in STEAM through our platform.

Here’s the first issue of Girl Genius Magazine. We hope it changes

#everyonedeserveshealthcare #everyonedeserveshealthcare #everyonedeserveshealthcare Although Eleanor Roosevelt is known primarily for being a First Lady, she made advancements well above her time, specifically in the role of healthcare. Roosevelt truly believed that everyone deserves access to healthcare, a conviction that has drastically shaped our world today. In 1948, she was appointed as the head of the UN Human Rights Commission. She helped write the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a proclamation that not only stated political freedoms, but also medical ones. Through this declaration, many medical mission groups, such as the Red Cross, were formed to make our world medically fair. Today, women are more determined than ever to pursue a career in medicine.

Didn’t we all once believe our world would come to an end in 2012 when there were a plethora of theories floating around?

Let us dive into a few of the major theories. December 21, 2012: this was officially announced as the Earth’s ending date. This date was significant because it indicated the end of the Long Count Calendar, developed by the Maya civilization. The Mayas dominated central America and Mexico before the 16th century. They were renowned for their skills in astronomy.

The Long Count Calendar has 5,126 years and reached the end on December 21, 2012. So everyone just deduced that the Calendar meant the end of the world!

How exactly was the world supposed to end in 2012? A planet called the Nibiru, would collide with the Earth, sweeping away all of the living race. Turns out, there were very few evidences to confirm the existence of

are we really doomed?

the planet.

why our world survived and ways it could end in the future.

The answer is: Yes. Perhaps by a ginormous meteor which will slam into Earth or

sneha pullanoor

Is there a possibility that the Earth will be destroyed? when the Sun swells into a red colossal monster in billions of years from now; swallowing Mercury and Venus, and Earth.


Are meteors so menacing? Most of the mini meteors burn before they can reach the Earth’s surface. But, there have been occurrences when this did not happen.

The Tunguska event is one of them which happened in the recent years. A massive meteor exploded over Siberia in Russia on June 30, 1098. It emptied the entire taiga forest and flattened the area which was within 2000 sq. kms.

On February 15, 2012, an asteroid named 2012 DA14 flew extremely close to the Earth.

To kill species, an asteroid needs to be at least a kilometer wide. Large asteroids, around 10 kilometers in diameter can be a cause of mass extinctions. According to scientific researches, the asteroid that hit Earth and resulted in extinction of dinosaurs 66 million years ago, was about 10-15 kilometers wide, and created a crater of about 180 kms.

The after-effects are appalling. Meteors so big produce in a lot of dust and debris that no or very little sunlight enters the Earth. As a result, plants die

Meteors will always be present in space. To save the earth, the first step is to see it coming. Scientists mainly detect asteroids by the use of telescopes, but we have not come close to finding all the asteroids yet. Whether it be a meteor strike or a zombie apocalypse, everything that begins comes to an end, and Earth might have an ending too.

soon. The energy of the asteroid is transferred to the earth, imparting heat and sound waves which travel radially outwards, similar to that of an atomic bomb. The Tunguska event produced an energy as much as 10-15 megatons of TNT. In few regions, there can also be earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes. It can also vaporize all of the earth’s oceans.

the pendulum- how things work

Another example is the pendulum.

Almost every object around us provides us a lesson in physics- the swings in playground, the ticking of the clock and even walking.

What is a pendulum?

sneha pullanoor

It is an object suspended from a string, which swings back and forth under the action of gravitational force. Â It is made up of two parts- a bob, which is the weight suspended; and a string.

What is pendulum motion? When the bob is displaced from equilibrium and then released, it begins its back and forth vibration. The motion is regular and repeating after an interval of time. It is called periodic motion.

Force analysis There are two dominant forces acting on the bob at all times. there is the force of gravity that acts downward upon the bob. It results from the Earth's attraction, and there is a tension force acting upward and towards the pivot point of the pendulum. There is also a third force known as the air resistance, which is very weak compared to the other two.

The aim of this project was to create a pendulum wave apparatus which consists of strings of different lengths, which when aligned together, produce


varying patterns- spirals, helixes which repeats after a certain period of time.

T max stands for the amount of time we would like the pendulum to take before

The amount of time it takes from the time it starts swinging to when the patterns

Wooden boards/planks Pins

The number of times a pendulum will swing can be calculated by using the

Strings Also, the time periods of each pendulum can be calculated by using the formula

Procedure Evenly space the pins on the plank to hang the pendulum, you can use as many as you want.

Hang the nuts and bolts by the pins, by varying lengths.

Formulae The length of the pendulum can be calculated by the formula given below

L stands for length N stands for the number of pendulum. Example: if you want to calculate the length of the second pendulum, n would be 2.

When performed, it is really interesting to watch the varying patterns.


animal testing - the inhuman crimes industries commit Several rats, monkeys, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, are tested on every day. Kept in horrific conditions- in enclosed spaces, chained up, with little or no food, and zero sanitation, they suffer. They are separated from their own species, resulting in loneliness and frustration. Most of them are euthanized after the testing is carried out. They are burnt, mutilated, electrocuted and drowned.

Industries ranging from tobacco to cosmetics, all conduct animal testing.

Animals are purposefully bred, which results in genetic abnormalities. A lot of the animal shelters and pounds supply animals to the laboratories, in exchange for money.

In 2016, the number of laboratory animals used in research at 820,812, a 7% rise from previous year. Credits: The Weekly Standard

del ehemann chemistry teacher

" I’m very proud of the fact that we have so many girls that take AP Chemistry because it has been a male dominated field. " Background My name is Del Ehemann. I’ve been at Highlands for 10 years. I teach chemistry and have been teaching since the past 15 years. Before then, I was a chemist in various capacities at independent testing laboratories.

What was it like working as a chemist, before becoming a teacher? Honestly, it was fun. It was really interesting. I got to work on a lot of different things. I worked on pharmaceutical products, I worked on consumer products like personal care and health care, I did a tiny little bit of environmental testing – not a ton, I used to do some food testing. So I got to do a wide variety of things and I enjoyed that. I found it fascinating!

Were you involved in any internships or jobs besides becoming a chemist or a teacher? No, I just worked for a lab while I was in college, like a part-time job. And then that turned into a full-time position when I quit – or when I graduated.


What got you into chemistry?

that I had to prove myself because I’m a woman.

For the first time, I really had to struggle, I really had to study to get good grades. I would always get good grades in lab, but my lecture grades would always be lower. It’s hard. And so I felt like I shouldn’t major in chemistry because I didn’t get all A’s. Especially here, in this environment at Highlands, I would caution, if you don’t get A’s, doesn’t mean it’s not the field for you. I finally, after all my iterations of “Oh, I’m gonna do chemistry.”, “Oh, I’ll do math.”, “Oh, I’ll do chemistry.”, “Oh, I’ll do engineering.”, “Oh, I’ll do chemistry.” etc. going back and forth in my head, I finally decided: I like it. It doesn’t matter if I get A’s in the lab and B’s in lecture. I like it. And you have to have a passion for what you’re doing before you can do it well. So, I really had to come to terms with that. And that’s what it always boils down to.

nivedita rajiv

aspiring biological science student at rutgers university Background: My name is Nivedita Rajiv and I’m a first-year majoring in Biological Sciences at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I am originally from Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, where I grew up and finished school at Delhi Public School, Nerul. I currently live with my family in Edison, New Jersey. When I’m not working on assignments, I enjoy listening to music or going to pretty spots on campus with my DSLR!

How did you know you were interested in Biological Sciences? For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by science, which probably stems from all the time I spent poring over encyclopedias laying around the house. These books covered topics ranging from dinosaurs to dolphins and whales and even before elementary school I had amassed so many fun facts about these animals. In high school, I developed an interest in learning about genetics which I shared with one of my closest friends at the time. My memories of us bonding over our fascination and curiosity makes it one of my favorite subjects to learn.

autoCAD cassette tape design technology projects | by shivali gulati As I am a part of my high school’s Engineering and Technology Academy, I am constantly creating 3D objects using the software, AutoCAD. Through AutoCAD, I was able to design the internal wireframing of a cassette tape key chain for my AirPods and print my design by using our class’ 3D printers. Designing a cassette tape key chain required me to follow a design process. This involved drawing the design on paper, using AutoCAD to gradually build the layers of the cassette tape, and using the 3DText Command to engrave words, like “in and out” on my key chain. I also added a hole onto the side of my cassette tape block, using the subtract command, to make my creation into a key chain. Although this is one of my early AutoCAD designs, developing my cassette tape taught me critical CAD concepts, such as extruding, which I consistently use for my other creations.

scholarly, your academic best friend technology projects | by izzy lapidus

Using JavaScript, I created my first ever app: SCHOLARLY. This app allows a user to input his or her grades, convert them into weighted averages on an AP scale, and calculate one’s unweighted or weighted average. As someone who cares tremendously about performing in school, I wanted to create an app that would be useful to me and my academic endeavors. With the creation of SCHOLARLY, I no longer have to spend time entering all of my grades into a calculator, adding them up, doing the division, etc. in an effort to calculate my average; I now have an app that does it all for me. My favorite part about SCHOLARLY, besides its aesthetically-pleasing interface, is that it allows the user to calculate both one’s unweighted and weighted average. At my school, we are never given the option to see how we are performing academically without our grades being inflated by the AP scale. I programmed SCHOLARLY to calculate both the unweighted and weighted averages simultaneously, allowing the user to compare the differences with ease.


Through the creation of this program, I ran into some troubles. The most difficult part was the execution of my ideas. In my head, I knew exactly how I wanted the program to look and perform, but figuring out the code I needed to make it function accordingly was definitely a challenge. What helped me throughout this process was thinking literally. I had to make sure not to assume anything of the computer. Another challenge I faced was finding a method to keep track of all the data. SCHOLARLY keeps track of one’s full list of grades, AP class grades, and non-AP class grades. In an effort to keep track of all of these different numbers, I used variables (from the letter A to X) to represent each different grade. When it came to performing the actual calculations, the 24 different variables came in handy. This is only the first version of SCHOLARLY, and I plan on advancing it to a point where it can calculate semester averages and even GPAs. As of right now, I am super satisfied with the turn out of my application and hope that people find it as useful as I do.


One class assignment was to work with my school’s literary magazine to redesign their website. In a team of four writing and design students, we used our knowledge about writing online content, web standards, and minimalist design principles to revamp their website. While the literary magazine uses a WordPress theme as a design template, our team provided recommendations to improve the site’s functionality and usability while keeping their minimalist vision in mind. It’s awesome to see how they have updated their website with our revisions!

One year ago, I created and designed my first website from scratch for a web design course. It’s similar to a studyblr or studygram, where site visitors can learn new studying resources and methods, read reviews about new stationery and writing supplies, and get inspiration for their planner or bullet journal. At first, I was a bit nervous about creating a website for a graduate-level class, but with my beginner’s background in HTML and CSS and an encouraging female professor, I created a basic, but aesthetically pleasing and functional site. I hope to one day keep updating and improving it once I learn more about coding.

software engineer by shivali gulati Computer Software Engineers use critical engineering and computing principles to develop effective programs for computers. In the workforce, software engineers have several tasks, such as organizing data, predicting the capabilities of programs, and extracting data from various sources.  Software engineers must have a strong foundation in mathematics and science in order to design software systems.

On average, software engineers in the United States made $100,000 annually. Most software engineers must have a bachelor’s degree, but many companies, like Google and Apple, hire workers if they can code even without a degree. Although software engineers are primarily males, a HackerRank’s study

technical writer by hailey j

Technical writers serve as communicators for a company or organization by creating, editing, and designing documentation such as instructional guides, user-manuals, standard operating procedures, and much more. They often work in technical industries such as medicine, manufacturing, and software development.

On average, the median pay for a technical writer is about $70,000 per year, or $30 per hour. Most technical writing positions require at least a Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree, with a demonstrated ability in writing and general knowledge of the subject matter (coding, web design, engineering, medical terminology, etc.). Â About 54.5% of technical writers are women.

biomedical engineer by hailey j

Biomedical engineers synthesize biology and engineering to design, build, and enhance medical devices and equipment to improve modern healthcare. Most biomedical engineering positions require at least a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree, but some positions may require higher education. Biomedical engineers typically work in hospitals, universities, and research centers. Their median pay is about $88,000 per year, or $42 per hour. Biomedical engineering has a more equal gender distribution than many other engineering fields, such as electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering. Women compose about 40% of biomedical engineers.

environmental engineer by rajvee patel

What would happen if a natural disaster were to come? How would you stay safe from their adverse effects? These are just a few out of the numerous questions environmental engineers face. They work to improve public health, pollution, and waste disposal. Depending on where you work, environmentalist engineers have a salary between $85,000-$100,000. This field is thought to be a mostly male-dominated area, but about 30.9% of workers here are women! The skills needed to apply for a job in this area include environmental consulting, engineering and designing skills, technical writing, project management, data analysis, construction site inspection, and the ability to create useful ideas!

anna ancher written by katie hall Anna Ancher was a Danish artist who was part of the artist colony, the Skagen Painters. The Skagen Painters were Scandinavian artists who were influenced by Realist movements and French Impressionist painters. Archer was the only one of the Skagen Painters actually raised in Skagen. She started creating art at a young age and studied at the Vilhelm Kyhn College of Painting before traveling and studying drawing in Paris. Some of her pieces include Harvesters (1905) and The Girl in the Kitchen (18831886). Her realistic depiction of everyday life and natural light draw many to her paintings. Archer was part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Modern Breakthrough,â&#x20AC;? a Scandinavian movement of art and literature. It focused more on reality, furthering the tone of French realism. She is considered to be one of the

joni eareckson tada written by b.b. hatt

If there was one word to describe Joni Eareckson Tada, it would be perseverance. Raised in an athletic family, Joni enjoyed an active lifestyle until at the age of 17 when she got paralyzed from the neck down due to an accident. Racked by grief and chronic pain, Joni was left with two choices: to wallow in self-pity or to make her life as beautiful as possible. She chose the latter.

A talented artist, Joni learned how to pencil sketch using her teeth, and has created many beautiful portraits and landscape pieces. In addition to sketching, Joni has written an autobiography, numerous articles, and released music. Her kind heart and beautiful artwork have uplifted the spirits of many. Her organization, Joni & Friends, is dedicated to helping those with disabilities and teaching people about how to overcome adversity through community and spirituality.

it's not always about the petals art portfolio by sena atesoglu

I initially was in search of something beautiful, stunning, and admiring to draw. Immediately a flourishing flower on the verge of a blossom came in mind. It looked beautiful to me, yet a thought crossed my mind.

Was it always the beauty of the flower that kept her strong?

no, it was the thorns

Deep down below, if you go close enough to prick your fingers, the blood emerging from those curious fingers will tell you a story. That it was indeed the thorns that kept her strong. Although she feigned fragility with the embrace of her rosy cheeks, the thorns stood firm and tall—unfazed.  In the end, when you bash her with vile words, her petals may wither along with her smile. However, a thorn will always remain unwithered, allowing a new flower to resurrect with towering courage

With his scaly silver wings to his unnatural yellow eyes, unnatural yellow eyes, nobody could mistake him for a bird or lizard. He just looked so out of nobody could mistake him for a bird or lizard. He just looked so out of this world—too mystical, to this world—too mystical, to be anything but. be anything but.

So I decided to go beyond my window and see for myself if the dragon was real, really. Making sure my dad’s snores and mom’s wheezes lasted for a while, I flopped out of bed and snuck out of my room to sneak down the stairs like a ninja. Or a really small dragon who floated rather than walked.

Drawing the door to the backyard back, I took in the chill of the navy blue Utah night-

groom. He continued to stare at me with his chartreuse eyes without breaking, unfazed. He was bigger than I expected, but that didn’t scare me. None of his physical features scared me. In fact, not even the one tooth hanging out of his triangular mouth scared me the slightest.

Deep down below, if you go close enough to prick your fingers, the blood emerging from those curious fingers will tell you a story. That it was indeed the thorns that kept her strong.

I didn’t say anything and neither did he. We kept staring and staring at each other—two totally different faces of a human and mythical creature. We didn’t share any special, magical telepathic connection that happened in stories, but I felt something. It was a feeling that blossomed into something beautiful and different and indescribable. Scientists said they could solve the meaning and purpose of life on Earth with numbers and theories, but they could never explain this. About why a mere kid like me got to see a live dragon from out of this world and not an adult with more knowledge and wisdom than I could ever have.

And then, the dragon jerked his head up like on other nights before, probably sensing things I could never. Without a single look back, he took off- flapping his silver wings skyward and soon turned into nothing but a sprinkled stardust in the night sky.

After that, I never saw him again- the birdhouse looking barren without resistance and the ground clear of holes and bird-like pecks. I had always wondered if he ever found whatever he was searching for—if he actually did and moved home content or was still looking, just in a different place. Or maybe I scared him away for good and lost his chance of finding it. I may never know.

I'm watching this sad spectacle from the window of my room, trying to hide myself from soldiers behind the curtain. Its a common thing in my valley. Bullets,deaths,protests, more bullets,even pellet guns,more deaths and eventually more protests.Every time,when such an incident happens,I feel a severe pain in my head,my heart begins to move like a drum and my body starts shivering. And in such conditions, writing relieves me, liberates my thoughts,gives me hope that I would be able to make the world a better place although it seems very difficult.The torrent of my grief and anger transforms itself into beautiful words.

It's my mission to raise awareness about kashmir issue, obviously through my writings.

Art, to me, is debating the worldly issues I so strongly have a passion for.

Dr. Hannah Fry is a British mathematician who focuses her studies on the mathematics behind human behavior such as dating and relationships, and also the prediction of the movements of people in large areas such as cities. She went to the University College of London (UCL) and was researching after completing her PhD, but has since moved into public speaking to promote interesting mathematical concepts to the public, so you may have seen her on TV, on the radio, or on YouTube, spreading her enthusiasm for the subject to engage more people and improve the reputation of mathematics in the public. Fry also has a big background on fluid mechanics, basing her PhD on the topic and thoroughly exploring the movement of liquids using math and physics, which is a very sought-after topic in the mathematical and scientific industry and thus makes Fry a very inspirational person for women seeking to do math in their future, as she is just one more example of how women can engage with mathematics so deeply.

Marie-Sophie Germain grew up in 18th and 19th century France where being a female mathematician was looked down upon. Despite this, she continued to learn mathematics by reading books from libraries written by famous mathematicians like Leonhard Euler and by interacting with mathematicians like Gauss and Legendre at the time. Germain worked primarily with the elasticity theory—the developing theory about how certain objects return to their original shape after being stretched—but she also touched on number theory, working on Fermat’s Last Theorem and providing basis on which new number theory could be developed. Since Germain was female, she was not allowed to pursue a career in math, but she, nevertheless, worked independently before she died. She was awarded a prize from the Paris Academy of Sciences for her work on elasticity and has since had a prize named after her to remind everyone of what an inspirational and hardworking woman she was.

math teacher interview interview by karen huynh

I had a sit-down interview with my math teacher who wishes be anonymous. She has been a math teacher for about fifteen years and my math teacher for two years.  This interview means a lot to me as she is retiring after this school year and has made such a positive impact on my life.  I hope for this interview to be just as impactful and enlightening to you as it was to me. So we can start with a little introduction of you and what you have done in the STEM field. I was interested in science when I was in highschool.  I had a particular liking of biology, chemistry, and math. I actually studied biology in college and I actually had a masters degree in genetics.  I was fascinated by that, but then after we got married and we moved to Texas, there was no genetics studies in Texas. And so I was bored, just got married, and thought, ‘Well, when I was writing up my thesis in genetics, I was using the computers and softwares’.  I published, actually, my thesis book many years ago. So, by basically typing and all that, I got interested in computer science. I went back and studied math in the computer science and mathematics department at UT, University of Texas. That was were I began my math career.  I started working as a programmer, and in my mid-life, I got bored. My kids said, ‘Mom, you’d be a good teacher’. And so I thought, ‘Well, if I’m bored now and my own kids think I will be a good teacher, then I should try it’. I started with subbing and I liked the school environment, so I got my credentials and now I’m a math teacher.


Why did you get bored as a programmer?

3.14159 3.14159 3.14159 3.14159 3.14159

Because, I like to talk and socialize, but as a programmer, you’re basically coding and typing all day. There’s not a whole lot of interaction, you’d be interacting with your colleagues, but through emails. You know me, I like to talk.  

Was it challenging for you everyday, or was it just redundant work?

but then I talk more about how to manage and disciplining yourself and push yourself to be the owner. But in the honors, I don’t need to do that a whole lot.  

As a teacher, have you noticed how competitive high school students have gotten?

It’s challenging, coding is pretty challenging. When I was working at Stanford, it was like, ‘Well today we need to finish working with the computers at Berkeley and link up with the Harvard library, so students can borrow their books’.  It was challenging, but I got bored.

So just wondering, but in your previous job, you were doing new things everyday and then here, you’re reteaching the same thing over and over again every year. Does that get boring to you, doing the same thing every year?

I think the high school track is more, I wouldn’t say competitive, but it is more pushed. Now, kids are trying to accomplish as many classes as possible, but my own kids just followed the regular path.  It was a lot more of a slower track, now it’s faster. It’s actually sometimes because our brain is still developing, so some things will click later on. Life is long, it’s okay. Some things will blossom later on, it’s okay.

Was it difficult for you to do whatever you wanted to do? Did you face any challenges or discrimination, in terms of your ethnicity or gender?

No, for me, it’s like each year, it’s a little different. Yes the concept is the same, but when I was developing Math 3A, it’s brand new work. Every few years, I change.  I taught Calculus, Pre-Calculus, 3A, just regular Common Core, Consumer Math. Not only that, but I like to talk and impart  some lessons from life to my students. I really like to teach kids about life and that actually has become the strongest motivation.  You know how I am different in my honors and regular classes? Yes. In the regular classes, the content is a bit easier, 

I grew up in Taiwan, I attended an all girls high school, and so I didn’t see any discrimination there. Here in the United States, I realized I was discriminated against with my first job as a programmer. I realized my male colleague was earning more that me even though I had a masters degree and he only had a bachelors degree, so I realized there was discrimination.  If you read the recent news at Google, it’s actually the male that is paid a little less. I think they noticed the discrimination part and tried to reverse that trend with big companies because they’re under more scrutiny. But for regular jobs, I am not

3.14159 3.14159 3.14159 3.14159 3.14159

quite sure. When there is a lot of discrimination, I think for girls, if we have strong self-esteem and we’re confident in ourselves and our skills,


we’re not going to let that discrimination intimidate us. We need to stand up and make our voices known.

How do you juggle being a mom and having a career? Like how do you juggle the role of being a mom and wanting to pursue your dreams?

a2 + b2 = c2 a2 + b2 = c2 a2 + b2 = c2 So I think when you make that choice, it’s already been predetermined.  I think life is long. For example, when I was a mom for the first many years, I put in a

Actually, all my life, I tried to balance those roles very much. So, some of my

lot work for my kids. Life is long, I’ve got all the time now.

friends from high school, they are all very accomplished; they are COOs, IT directors, and professors. When I started out as a programmer, I started with IBM, which is like the company to work for, I figured it was taking up a lot of my time.  I decided to work for the state government, which is eight to five.  Five

That’s interesting, because I feel like I think I should rush to get all of my goals accomplished, but I can just take my time to enjoy my life and enjoy my kids.

o’clock, I go home and I can be a good mom versus some of my friends who were struggling with that balance. I think it’s up to the person, but balance is on my mind all the time.

I find that, in a lot of situations, many mothers I find that, in a lot of situations, many mothers are expected to put their dreams on hold to take care of their kids and that is kinda sad. Yeah. That is because, not only does society put a lot of pressure on and

Yeah, that’s what I did. I took the time, enjoyed my kids and actually didn’t work for a few years.  I made sure that their school path was set up right and that they were on the right track to work.  I didn’t have any care or worry when they were in school, because they were doing great. I don’t have any worries now because I knew they’re doing okay.  If I did not take to time off, I don’t know if they would be doing as well now. It’s all about choosing wisely.

Who is the most inspirational women to you?

expectations on us females, but I think as females and mothers, by nature, we just want to tend to our kids. I think we need to embrace that. Finding that balance takes some wisdom. Seeing my successful friends, they really struggle with finding that balance a lot of times. For me, I am very happy.  

I would say my mom. My mom was born in China, but then she went through the civil war and she fled China to Taiwan.  You see how I’m pretty progressive right? Yes. When my mom was growing up, as a little girl, she would stand in the middle of the street in her city and speak out against the warlords of China.

Is it hard to find that balance?

She was a refugee student when she was fourteen, she never went back to her home. She raised us with amazing grace. But here in this school, Ms. Sherbakov is my inspiration.
