I’m Anne-Marie Imafidon and I’m the youngest girl ever to pass an A-level in Computing (done aged 11 instead of 18) and am one of the youngest to gain a Masters degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Oxford University (aged 20). I was UK IT Young Professional of the Year in 2013 and currently work in technology at a bank.
I set up the Stemettes project in 2013 to inspire girls to consider careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (collectively known as STEM) by showing them the lovely women already working in STEM. Since February 2013 we’ve held panel events, hackathons and exhibitions around the UK, where hundreds of girls have been able to create their own mobile apps, games & data visualisations, as well as meet all kinds of women from across STEM.
I started the project because I love my job and can’t believe that the number of women going into STEM in the UK is so low and has been falling. Girls are missing out on a whole word of creativity, fun and being able to impact lives - so I’m doing what I can to show girls that they can have a full, fulfilling, happy and normal life if they join this industry.
In the future, I’d love for Stemettes to be something that all girls can access and try out some of STEM for themselves - being it creating their own mobile app, mixing up their own cocktails or attempting to create and prove their own theorems. Maybe then, we’ll have more girls trying to and succeeding in the increasingly important (and exciting) STEM industry.
top tips from tom
1. Exercise regularly, do it with others, make it fun.
2. Drink 2 litres of good quality water a day.
3. If you you are going to have a bad habit have the best quality one you can i.e. freshly ground freshly brewed organic coffee.
4. I used to say eat what God made…….. now I say eat what God made and how he made it (man has messed with nearly all food)
5. When it comes to your own health, we are all different. Be intelligent, do your own research, take advice, listen to loads of opinions, be informed, be suspicious of opinions that have an ‘axe to grind’ make your own mind up. If it doesn’t work have the courage to change your mind.
I’m looking forward to the day when I don’t constantly have microsoft word or pages open.
