    Early in my student life I was faced with stereotypes about STEM education in Cameroon. It was serious because all the girls including me shied away from STEM education due to perceptions that STEM fields were ‘for boys’.
    I have been teaching in a Technical College for 13 years, using the classroom to #BreakTheGlass and to impact directly the girls I teach by organizing skill transfer forums. This has given her the opportunity to understand why the gender tech divide is still wide, prompting me to create a youth vocational technical training centre, Center for Youth Education and Economic Development in 2010.

    Being a woman has always been misconceived and miscontrued as being a lesser being. When I was growing up, the status quo taught me to believe that the place of a woman is the kitchen and being a homemaker. As iron sharpens iron,so have I been sharpened through interacting and sitting under women who have risen above all odds.

    Today,I Break The Glass by mentoring young girls to ascend to the highest ladder they can in whatever field one is in. One thing is for sure, when you mentor a woman, you mentor a community because we have a way of multiplying and duplicating what has been given to us. Women and girls are the best incubators if entrusted with ideas.
