Focus on your brain, not your skinny jeans!

How smart is this girl??  I love it!  Watch this 5 minute clip from the Stephen Colbert show.

Her name is Olivia Hallisey and she’s the winner of Google’s Science Fair. She’s 17 years old! So confident, so articulate and clearly passionate about what she does. And she invented a new test for Ebola!

These are the types of role models young girls & women need to be surrounded by. Science is cool. Being smart is cool. And wanting to talk about things other than your body weight, or cooking or calories…..is SO much cooler.
