I'd rather go alone than follow a group of people going the wrong way.

“Kate's Changing The World” is my reaction to the gender gap in the STEM fields. STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math. Unfortunately, women are underrepresented in these professions. Girls, even when they have shown potential, have traditionally not been encouraged enough to study math, computer technology, engineering or science and there are not many women role models. Computer technology is becoming increasing important in our world. It was my intent that this artwork reach out to girls by showing a female computer and data scientist, fully engrossed in her work, who will change the world with her formulas.
