Today, as information and data has become the most lucrative business around the globe, men are the majority in this field, creating discrepancies in income and homogeneous professionals. This status quo will not facilitate a healthy development of such industries. Thus, for a better future of data science, we want to support more girls to enter this field, and promote those interesting applications of data science done by women in this industry. If you are a math and science girl, you are welcomed to come and unlock the great potential of your future.
近年来，数据一直是每个行业的核心。 数据分析带来创新，服务于人们的日常生活，带来商业利润。 然而，由于目前的高中教育，很多学生不了解这个领域的细节——如何分析数据，如何在社会和行业中应用，如何成为一名数据科学家等等。
We hope to inspire and educate more high school students, especially the girls, getting them ready for choosing data science as their future major and career. In addition, promoting the diversity of gender in the data science industry is our goal as well.

Their story of with data science, and how their work has influnced people around them
How their identity as a woman has played a role in their career.
Their advice to the high school students about their future data science career.
