There are tweets as well. Thank you O’Reilly Media for pushing this issue to the forefront, and for giving us a chance to “represent” an area that we love. Thank you to Cornelia Levy-Bencheton and Shannon Cutt for making this happen. Thank you to Diane DiResta for nominating me. Congratulations to my fellow “Cover Girls!”
I dedicate this post to my dad, the late George C. Garrison, who introduced me to math, taught me to love the variable “x” … the unknown, introduced me to engineering, and told me that girls could do anything!
