Why did you get into STEM?

STEM is fascinating and challenging at the same time, but in a good way. The kind of challenge that leads you to create solutions and keeps you excited while you do it. I also found that I really enjoy Software programming and this directly influenced my decision to build a STEM career.

In short, I got into STEM because it is a fun way to create valuable solutions.

What do you consider your greatest achievements?

Honestly, my greatest achievements have been excelling at my jobs so far.

What challenges have you faced as a woman in STEM and how did you overcome them?

I haven’t faced too many challenges as a woman in STEM, but one challenge I have faced is having to prove myself because of the inherent perception some people hold that women are not so good in STEM fields. I overcome this every time by ignoring it, educating those I can educate, or simply focusing on my job and giving it my absolute best.

What is your advice to budding women in STEM?

Keep at it. It is really rewarding, and we need more women than ever to start and stay in this field. Cheers.

Meet Angela Tabiri, Postdoctoral fellow at AIMS-Ghana

After postgraduate studies at AIMS-Ghana and ICTP-Italy, Angela became conscious of the opportunities available when one studies mathematics. Prior to this, most people thought anyone who studied mathematics at the university would end up as a teacher. This is not to say that teaching is not a good profession as Angela also loves teaching. When she realised the many opportunities available after her postgraduate studies, she decided to volunteer as a mathematics teacher in a junior secondary school in her community. This would inspire the young students that mathematics is not impossible to study as perceived and one could pursue a career in mathematics. Angela’s undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Ghana.
