Flor Serna ’15

Flora Serna - Loyola University New OrleansWHERE
Tech entrepreneur and founder of Electric Girls, a STEM-education startup that teaches elementary-age girls that they can be as skilled as anyone in electronics, audio, computer programming, and design

HOW SHE GOT THERE
Majored in music industry studies; noticed she was the only female engineer who worked in the recording studio; developed her own curriculum that allowed her to mentor freshmen in the studio; encouraged young women with an interest in STEM to stick with it; got inspired to continue the work

"I asked Loyola if I could develop a curriculum for a program that I would actually work on with students and measure the outcomes. I applied for the Magis grant. I wrote grant proposals to the Women’s Resource Center and Music Industry Department. In total, I got $1,300. And Electric Girls was born."
