Hope has always been interested in the humanities, especially in seeing how abstract ideas affect real people and how they survive and thrive in this complicatedly beautiful world. Her love for STEM came afterwards, and now intersects with her love for the humanities! She joined the STEM Network to share it. STEM plays a big role in humans’ daily lives, just as stories, economics, and culture do, but it can be hard to understand. Thus, she wants to help lower that barrier and is excited to see more people get curious about STEM, just like she has!
