STEM Girl Friday: Limor Fried of AdaFruit
Forget STEM Girl Friday, how about STEM Goddess Friday? That title fits Limor Fried, engineer, social media maven and business owner. She dropped out of high school due to boredom then took college classes and Boston University finally moving on to MIT's Media Lab(!) where she received a master's degree in engineering. She founded and currently runs a company, AdaFruit Industries, which is all sorts of awesome.
You'll have to click to read and watch the video below to see just how awesome she is. I've got other deadlines to meet today, people.
Limor is currently in the running for Entrepreneur Magazine's Established Entrepreneur of the Year. Go vote.
In fact, she's the ONLY women in the running in all of the three categories. (The only woman, can that possibly be correct? WTF, Entrepreneur?)
Tell all your friends to vote, too. Seriously. One woman, Entrepreneur?
