I am spreading the word about STEM.  As of 2016, less than 18% women pursued STEM-related careers.  Of those, minorities lagged behind. My first book focused on a Latina girl who wanted to become an environmental chemist to make the world a better place.  My next book is going to be about a kid with autism who has already made up his mind that he is a mechanical engineer.  I would like to the underrepresented population, so that they can see that it is possible to dream big. 

As an educator, I've participated in STEM and nationwide events designed to promote STEM awareness. STEM jobs offer security and are on the rise.   I feel that it is important that we compete in the global economy.  I am targeting young children and their parents, because I feel that it is never to early to have conversations and to start dreaming big.

I have spoken to young audiences and gone to book festivals and other author events.  My company's name is also my book series name.  I hope to write and publish more books that highlight other individuals. I create workbooks with sections that cover science, technology, engineering, art and math, to accompany each book.

Your donations will help in my effort to spread the word by having my next book, which would help give me more credibility, published. If you want to forgo the package, you may choose to sponsor a child with your donation and I will give the package that you paid for to some lucky student!
