Our mission is to create awareness and inspire curiosity through educational content in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), and highlighting the notable achievements of women throughout history.
We seek to redefine what it means to be HOT and change society’s definition of femininity and normative gender roles. We want to create a space where future generations are inspired to discover the hotness within themselves.
