Her interactive presentation takes youth through her personal journey as an artist inspired by science with a passion for humanitarianism. She shares the science that has informed her work, talks about the unique socio-economic landscape that students need to be prepared for to succeed in the world, and advocates for the creative hybridization of technology, an interdisciplinary approach to life and using art as a vehicle for change.
