She said: “I urged the school authority in Lagos state to include an interactive/sensitization session for parents, guardians and teachers to inspire positive attitude and support for females in the pursuit of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

“I use this medium to really appreciate all individuals and corporate sponsors”, she stated.
