    50 Stories for 50 Years | Story #20: Fernanda Sulantay & Sonia Camacho - Influencing STEM and Beyond

    50 Stories for 50 Years | Story #20: Fernanda Sulantay & Sonia Camacho - Influencing STEM and Beyond

    Hola Familia! Welcome back to another exciting episode of SHPE Out Loud, where we amplify the voices of Hispanics in STEM. I’m Alex Wait, the producer of the show, and today marks the 20th episode in our "50 Stories for 50 Years" series. This special installment brings you a dynamic duo: Fernanda Sulantay and Sonia Camacho, two incredible STEM content creators who are as close to SHPE celebrities as you can get.

    Fernanda, a Chemical Engineer pursuing her Ph.D. in Computational Science at Yale, immigrated to the US from El Salvador and is a resilient mom of two. Sonia, a Digital Accessibility Engineer at Nike, holds both undergraduate and master's degrees in Computer Science from Oregon State and proudly identifies with her Mexican heritage.

    Their paths to engineering couldn't be more different—one always had a passion for STEM, while the other initially feared becoming a "nerd." Despite their unique journeys, both Fernanda and Sonia have navigated the challenges of being women in male-dominated fields, staying true to themselves while unapologetically pursuing their professional goals.

    In this inspiring and fun conversation, you'll hear about their personal stories, professional endeavors, and how they manage to bring enthusiasm and flair to their work and the SHPE community. Get ready to be influenced in the best possible way as we listen to Fernanda and Sonia speak out loud.

    Thank you, Fernanda and Sonia, for sharing your vibrant stories and for being real about your struggles and successes. Your contributions make our SHPE Familia stronger, and you are the role models we all need.
