Rita Roloff: Could We Have Dreamed Up a Better Role Model?

Mastery of learning, says Rita Roloff, allows people to experiment with new things. It breaks egocentrism and allows us to see our ignorance and biases. From exploring STEM in high school and now as a computer science major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Rita has learned how many doors STEM can open, especially for girls and women. Through this realization, she is using her Miss America platform to encourage more girls to pursue STEM through fashion design. Meet Rita, Pretty Brainy National Ambassador.

But Then Again, There’s High School

A New Post by Kyra

“The last time I wrote for Pretty Brainy and all of you lovely people out there, I had just completed my elementary school years,” says Kyra. “Surrounded by all of my friends that I had known for years, I was ready to enter middle school. If you’ve read my last article, you can tell that I was nervous. Nervous of what people would think of me, nervous of the workload, and terrified of all of the new experiences. Needless to say, I survived.”
But now, Kyra writes, there’s high school. How is she surviving that?
