From Diana:
"I was fortunate to grow up with parents supporting higher education, an environment where I can focus on learning. Having pursued an engineering degree and a successful career in Tech, I want to in turn support and inspire young girls to do the same. I want to show students the opportunities ahead of them. Careers in STEM are cool, and not just for boys. At every IGNITE event, its inspiring to see how curious the girls are, the questions they ask about working in tech. Even if one girl decides she can pursue a career in tech and feels that she too can do it, its worth it."
