Letter to my 17 Year Old Self

I WISH, recognising the important of female role models in persuading girls to study STEM, have asked women in at all stages of their STEM career, to a write a letter to their 17 year old self - exploring what they were like, what they wished they knew back then, why STEM is important to them now and who inspired them.
