Nerdy Girls want to show beauty can mix with brains

Studying and specially “nerdy” subjects like Mathematics, Science, and Computers is supposed to be non-chic. Geeky and hot females ostensibly don’t go together. But there is a bunch of girls who are out to prove that wrong.

They are travelling the US and trying to spread the message that its fine to be chic and to be intelligent and geeky. This will help dispel the un-necessary myth that beauty and brains do not mix!

In addition to Vardaro, Panetta was accompanied by three other female engineers, any of whom could find work as a model. Cristina Sanchez is pursuing her master’s in biological engineering at Tufts. Lauren Jones is a computer engineer working on reducing the size of microprocessors. Reshma Taufiq is helping Nike build a digital presence in India.

The women are also talented in music and the arts, are physically active, and love dressing up and shopping. But they’re also delighted to get a soldering gun for a birthday present.

“We’re here to say, you can be not just one-dimensional. You can have everything,” said Taufiq. “You can be smart and athletic and fun and have it all.”

“We’re trying to show how diversified engineers are and how talented we are,” added Panetta. “Everyone has talents in drama, dance, art, music. All these women have exquisite talents.”
