When we promote diversity in STEM fields, we ask questions like, “what made you get into this field” and “what are your thoughts on the diversity problem“, but we never touch upon the beautiful and unique personal style that people bring with them into these fields.
So let’s change that: Fibonacci Sequins is a style blog that showcases and celebrates diversity + personal style in STEM. By sharing who we are, we will not only celebrate each other’s individuality, but also show the future STEM-stars that there isn’t one kind of role model — there are literally hundreds, and no one has changed who they are to fit in.
By day, we’re engineers working on HoloLens at Microsoft and by night, we’re a crime-fighting, photo-taking, profile-writing duo. We have really enjoyed meeting amazing people from around the world and featuring them as role models as they show off their personal style. We’ve seen a wonderful mix of street-style, work aesthetics, conference creations, vintage scores, designer pieces, tricked out career fair t-shirts, traffic stopping accessories and everything in between.
It’s time for us to be proud of who we are and embrace that we can be geeks gone chic!
