Female scientists of the future

In a world where scientific breakthroughs shape our future, two young women at Christel House South Africa are paving the way for a new generation of female scientists. Meet Saskia P. (left) and Aluta T., Grade 11 students whose passion for science and mathematics knows no bounds.

Saskia says she finds inspiration in the mysteries of life science and the groundbreaking work of pioneers like Marie Curie, the physicist and chemist who pioneered research on radioactivity, and Rosalind Franklin, the British chemist whose work was a driver to understanding the molecular structures of DNA, RNA, and viruses. Saskia is an exceptional student at Christel House. She lives with her mother, father, grandmother, and younger sister who also attends Christel House in Grade 2. Driven by a desire to unravel mysteries and make a positive impact in society, Saskia aims to pursue a career in forensics. She encourages other young women to follow their dreams. “Believe in yourself, surround yourself with supportive peers and mentors that uplift you,” she says. “Seek out opportunities that showcase your talent and never lose sight of your passion and determination because you will achieve your goal.”

Aluta, like Saskia, also has a younger sister at Christel House, in Grade RR. Aluta draws strength from her family bonds and the memory of her late grandmother, who battled cancer. Determined to make a difference, Aluta aspires to study radiology, specializing in radiotherapy, to combat cancer and alleviate suffering. For Aluta, her journey is not just about academic excellence but also about breaking barriers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math), advocating for inclusivity and gender equality. Her advice for young people pursuing STEM-related careers is straightforward. “Be confident, trust in your abilities, and believe that you are capable of achieving anything.”
