The stereotype that some female engineers have no sense of style is continuously changing and this fashion blogger based in Portland, Oregon USA is making a statement about being a member of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) family and having a great sense of style.
Nnennaya Udochu is of Nigerian origin and is an Analog Engineer with a fierce style ranging from streetwear to little black dresses for a night out. Her style begins first with how creative she is with her hair. She says, “Your hair is as important as what you want your outfit for the day to be”.
Most people wouldn’t believe Miss Udochu to be an engineer working for the number one semi-conducting leading company in the world of technology based on her appearance. She highlights that female engineers have elegance and class. Nnennaya has an intense desire to change the general belief that engineers are nerds who do not care about their looks.
Aside from being in love with fashion, Nnennaya is involved within the community and making an impact across African countries as she serves on the Board of Directors for United Nations Association of Young Professionals, Portland Oregon. She has organized several fundraisers to assist with providing education and classrooms at Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya through the Adopt a Future campaign. Recently in the month of November, she has organized an art fundraiser to help educate members of the Abuja IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camp on water management which is one of the sustainable goals for the United Nations in 2018.
