Congratulation to Braisly Vargas!
Braisly Vargas is a sophomore here at Southern, who excels in the classroom and on the volleyball court. She participated in the Women in STEM round table discussion held on March 24, 2021. The round table featured Braisly an EPA student intern. Others on the panel include EPA Scientists and Engineers, the STEM Outreach Director, and Student Engagement Coordinator. During the round table discussion, the topic focused on how students see themselves in STEM, the gender roles in STEM, the misconceptions surrounding women in these fields as we examine where we are presently, and where we aim to be in the future. Braisly is a shining example of why the future of STEM is bright and why accessibility is so important.
