COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for our international student community. International students face financial challengers and also feelings of stress, anxiety, or distress associated as COVID-19 takes its toll. We developed an initiative to respond to the urgent needs of international students.
"Women who feel like they belong are more likely to enter and stay in STEM, therefore lack of belonging is one of the reasons women of colour lack of representation in STEM.” By sharing older sisters STEM story we to make awareness of our STEM role models as 'You can't be what you can't see'.
