Being a part of Maydm is really me helping my younger self. I want to see women of color supported in their STEM education the way I wish I had been.
Valeria graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.S. in Psychology. During her undergraduate experience, she worked in the Prejudice and Interpersonal Relations Lab where she managed projects that researched biases in national STEM research funding and the effectiveness of cultural competency training. Valeria’s experience at Maydm will allow her to learn new ways to support under-resourced communities.
