The Hub for Canadian Women in STEM



My name is Miranda Furtado

I am a Jill of All Trades

When I was 10 I wanted to be in broadcasting.

I am proud of being on national TV. Having been born with a cleft palate and dealing with a speech impediment for years has made this a career highlight for me. Not for the purpose of fame or bragging rights — but more because I managed to beat the odds and overcome a challenge to get there.

I work as a creator and Editor In Chief of Stats. Style. Score — a female-run sports/entertainment site.

The biggest obstacle I have faced is being born with a cleft palate and going through years of speech therapy. The fact that I’m in broadcasting and a regular face on Canadian TV, that’s a big deal for me.

My advice to women is just like Nike — just do it.
