In the 1990s, Yale researcher Suniya Luthar began studying the lives of American teenagers affected by poverty, crime, and substance abuse. In search of a control group to compare her findings, she uncovered a shocking truth: affluent suburban teenagers were struggling more with substance abuse and mental health than less privileged peers.1

Hey Mentee Barbies, Parent Barbies, and all you Curious Barbies out there,
From novice to Google Engineer, Anya style.
Meet Anya, a Stanford math whiz who had zero interest in coding...until she tried an intro class freshman year. That simple act unlocked a hidden passion!
When I first arrived at Stanford, coding wasn't even on my radar. It seemed like a foreign language, and I had no plans of delving into it. During orientation week, I stumbled upon an introductory coding class, and something about it piqued my curiosity. I decided to give it a shot, and little did I know, it would change my life forever.
When I first stepped into the realm of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), it felt like an exhilarating rollercoaster ride. The possibilities seemed endless, but I couldn't ignore the glaring gender disparity and gender biases. As a woman, I was often made to feel alone and out of place, but that didn't deter me. Instead, it fueled my determination to break barriers and pave the way for more women to thrive in STEM fields.
