"To me, being a woman in STEM wasn’t about accepting male culture, it became about starting a female culture that is synonymous with engineering." (Medium)

Who runs the world? Girls! Karina Popovich is the first-year Cornell Applied Economics and Management student bringing femininity to tech. Karina has always had a passion for STEM from prototyping, 3D printing, laser cutting, and making. When she reached highschool she wanted to feel empowered and empower other girls to not have to choose between femininity and STEM. So she founded Alpha—a 3D-printed clothing line for women in STEM that lets you know that you can have both. She is at the frontier of marketing innovation and making prototyping education, particularly 3D-printing, more accessible to today's youth.
