Portraits of Strength features women in STEM who have helped break barriers and achieved great things within their industry. These are the movers and shakers making a better world for future female leaders in STEM. Here are the stories of how they’re changing the ratio, serving as role models for girls and young women across Canada, and inspiring us all.

My name is Lyndsay Kirkham.

I am a Writer, Editor and Web Developer

When I was 10 I wanted to be a Hot Air Balloon Engineer.

I am proud of designing and developing book covers, websites and blogs for feminist non-profit organizations. And the conversations that were generated from the IBM live-tweeting 🙂

The biggest obstacle I have faced was the poverty that I grew up with — both as a stigma while in little school and specifically in acquiring education.

My advice to women is be yourself. Make connections with other women. Don’t be afraid to share your ideas and speak your own truth.
