This winter, we focus on math. Studies have shown that although many girls are interested in math at age 11, many have lost interest by the age of 15. This results in fewer women working in mathematical and STEM fields. In this issue of STRONG, we wanted to show you how awesome math can be! We talk to world renowned mathematician Melanie Matchett Wood, the first female EVER to make it onto the US International Mathematical Olympiad Team, who talks about how creative math is - because you’re trying to understand and figure things out about the universe that nobody has figured out before! We look at 5 female mathematicians who have changed the world, and we look at the use of math in art (ever heard of the golden ratio?) and nature.
We have a fantastic interview with Taylor Moxey, an 11-year-old entrepreneur, author an philanthropist. This awesome female doesn’t let anything stand in her way. To date she has created two libraries (one from an old shipping container), as well as started her own cupcake business and written her own book! Check her story on page 58.
For an inspirational story of bravery and courage, look no further than our interview with Millie Metchick on page 26. Millie was a regular, active 15 year old when she suddenly started experiencing excruciating pain and was diagnosed with a rare illness called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Read how Millie has fought against her illness and be amazed and inspired by her positive attitude and determination.
In “Your Planet, Your Future” we take a look at the impact fast fashion has on the environment, and challenge 3 of our STRONG role models to create outfits by recycling and upcycling. Check out our fab photoshoot for a look at affordable fashion that’s good for the earth!
All this and so much more in issue 7 of STRONG!
Issue 6 of STRONG is here! If you have a subscription, you can click the magazine cover above to read.
We’re kicking off with a great article on self defense. There’s nothing so empowering as feeling equipped to deal with whatever comes your way, so we had self defense expert and 5th degree blackbelt, Lisa Bohacs, show some of our STRONG girls some great self defense moves they could use to protect themselves.
We also have an amazing interview with the New York City Ballet’s Mary Elizabeth Sell. Ballet may look graceful, but it takes an enormous amount of physical and mental strength to make it to the top as a professional ballerina—and to make it look easy! Check out this great interview by STRONG’s summer intern, Emma Sydney, on page 36.
We talk to the former Australian star of Matilda the Musical, Izellah Connelly, about her new career as a pop star, and find out about her great girl power single “Unbeatable”!
There’s an article on protecting your digital identity, a focus on “The Problem with Plastic” and this fall we’re also focusing on back to school with great articles with tips if you’ve started a new middle or high school this year.
