Celebrating Women’s History Month, Regina Honu
In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’re proud to honor female pioneers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) who have paved the way for other women to learn, grow and lead in tomorrow’s workforce.
Recognizing the importance of quality STEM education and gaps in underrepresented communities, we recently expanded our programs to reach students and educators around the world. Regina Honu was one of many educators from 11 countries who joined us for our inaugural International STEM Studio last summer.
STEM Studio is a signature program of TGR EDU: Create that provides training and resources that allow educators explore strategies to enhance their curricula and prepare their students for future STEM careers and help them navigate through the college application process. Connecting educators in a collaborative learning environment, workshops are held in one day to week-long formats.
Regina was recently recognized as one of OkayAfrica’s 100 Women. She explained during her interview that after being discouraged by a teacher from pursuing STEM studies at an early age, she determined that “impossible” is a word that shouldn’t be a part of anyone’s vocabulary but certainly wouldn’t be in hers. She went on to become a successful software developer and one of the first technology entrepreneurs in her country. She also founded Soronko Academy, West Africa’s first coding school for children and young adults.
“Women and girls have no limits and can be or do anything they set their minds to,” she said “I wanted to make sure women and girls are able to reach their full potential. I work to ensure young people find their voice and are inspired to chase their dreams.”
Redefining what it means to be a champion.
