OUR STORY

At the core of Triangle STEM Foundation (TSF) lies a story close to our hearts, one that propels our mission to champion girls in STEM education. As co-founders, our journey began with a pivotal moment that drove our mission to empower girls in STEM. Growing up together, we navigated the challenges and triumphs of our academic journeys side by side. However, as we advanced into higher-level math classes in our high school education, we couldn't help but notice a troubling trend: the absence of girls in our classes.

The disparity was shocking– less than 5% of our peers were girls, a pattern that persisted across physics, science, calculus, and other math courses. We knew that talent and potential weren't confined by gender, yet the underrepresentation of girls in STEM fields painted a different picture. Determined to address this disparity, we embarked on a mission to empower girls and create a pipeline of young women pursuing STEM careers. 

 

As a result, Triangle STEM Foundation was born. As co-founders, we were driven by a sincere desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young women. We understood the systemic challenges that hindered girls from pursuing STEM interests, from societal pressures to a lack of relatable role models and support systems. We believe that every girl deserves the opportunity to explore her potential and pursue her passions without limitations. Our journey is deeply personal, rooted in a shared commitment to equity, inclusion, and empowerment. 

 

Join us in our mission to ignite, educate, and uplift the next generation of female leaders in STEM. Together, let’s redefine the narrative and cultivate a world where every girl has the wings to soar!
