Riyanka Ganguly – A young role model for all ages

I was blown away by this 5 minute speech by high school student Riyanka Ganguly. In an Ignite Seattle speech entitled ‘I Like Pink But That Does Not Mean I Can’t Think,’ Riyanka beautifully challenges stereotypes and preconceived notions that young girls (and grown women) encounter as barriers to their success–especially those of us interested in science. Riyanka is an unapologetic go-getter. She started a chapter of Young Women in Bio at her high school and I can’t wait to see all the places she’ll go!
