The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.’
On Wednesday a small group of Year 10 students attended a STEM breakfast at the SAN Hospital. The quote above set the tone for what was a wonderful event. The girls listened to some truly inspiring speakers from the medical and health industry who shared their personal career journeys, their struggles, failures and influences that got them to where they are today i.e. working in heart transplant, obstetrics, cancer research, radiation oncology, nursing and orthopedics.
The ‘walk aways’ from the presentations included:
- Don’t be afraid of hard work
- Find a mentor
- Failure is a part of life – learn from it!
- Balance is the key to a successful career and life
- Enjoy the journey, be open and flexible – you never know where you will end up!
From the girls:
“The STEM mentors breakfast was really inspiring as so many influential women in the fields of medicine, technology and science spoke to us about their journey and their specific career field. The talk was really interesting and useful and it has made me excited about these fields and now I am considering a career in the fields of medicine, science and technology.”
“Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to go to the session this morning.
I really enjoyed it and found it a very inspirational experience.
As I would like to become a medical practitioner when I leave school, I found the speakers’ stories motivating and they gave me an insight into what life is like as a woman in the health industry. I was especially interested in how the women managed their children and career at the same time. Overall, this was a great experience and I valued listening to each of the women’s stories.”
