Young Omaha woman is trying to make a difference

OMAHA, Nebraska — The underrepresentation of women in STEM professions (which stands for Science Technology Engineering and Medicine) is gaining more and more attention.

Now on 3 News Francesca Stessman, the current Miss Omaha STEM, sat down with the reigning Miss Omaha STEM, Caitlin Connell, to discuss how she is working to make a difference in the community.

“Representing these women who possibly do not have a voice or who are too afraid to speak up is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. And as a woman working in STEM, I want to be a part of the change that gets made by my platform, and I want to empower other women working in the area so that we all have a better future,” Stessman said.

At the moment, a good portion of her time is devoted to giving talks to children about the importance of STEM-related careers.

Francesca is currently a certified nursing assistant at Nebraska Medicine, and she has aspirations of working in the medical field in the future as a physician’s assistant.
