Stories from alumni and coaches

  • Dr Michaela Froehlich

    It might not always be easy, but a certain degree of challenge is good to keep you going.

  • Ava Woodard

    Curious Minds taught me that there is a space in the world for people like me. Young, creative women who are good at maths are necessary right now in the world and I hope that I can use my skills to make the world a better place.

  • Harmony Lower

    I am studying an advanced Bachelor of Science at Monash University and I am planning on majoring in two of chemistry, mathematics, or astrophysics. I am in a program called GEM (Gender Equity in Maths) where every student gets a female mentor to help and guide you. As a part of this program, I have been fortunate enough to meet and see the works of some pretty amazing women in STEM.
