Paulina is an amazing EHS engineer at Lockheed Martin, a STEMinist, and ultimate hype girl! She has gone through breakups, career changes, and has worked her ass off to be where she is now. She faces challenges head-on along with her sidekick-Kevin! (pictured with her) Her mission is to empower other Latinas to pursue careers in STEM.
I initially reached out to Paulina to interview her on her experience being a Latina in STEM. That interview turned into a one hour long conversation about literally everything. She is one of my favorite instagram friends I've made!
What is one piece of advice that you always refer back to?
Everything you do you need to ask yourself, "how does this affect me personally?" When I say personally, I'm talking about mentally, physically, and spiritually. When you go on Instagram- mentally, are you happy? or do you feel anxious? Physically- does your body tighten? Do a full scan and remove anything in your life that is toxic.
