Why is this community critical?

A few months ago there was a class project for my oldest.  The assignment was to do a video on a topic of interest, and post it on YouTube.

My daughter chose asteroids, and studied how a mission to mars might use asteroids to replenish water and air during the trip, and then sustain life on mars.

She posted the video, and won third place on a pan-india competition.  One of my work colleagues then sent her a video, congratulating her, and then told her that she had worked on the same problem when she worked with NASA!

My daughter got so excited to hear that!  Her first reaction was

‘Was my video correct?
Can we really do that?
That is awesome!’

That video did wonders for my daughter that day.  What if young girls anywhere could hear directly from women, who do awesome things every day, in different careers, different  places?

This community is my attempt to do that.   To collect stories from women around the world, conversations from them to young girls everywhere.

So please, tell your story.  It will make all the difference to a young girl, opening her eyes to a world of possibilities.

Why Osom.ai?

Well, because my daughter said that it was ‘awesome’ that I knew someone who had worked on rockets with NASA.

And then I looked at my network and I realized I know women with many more ‘awesome’ stories:  entrepreneurs, military intelligence, humanitarians, academics.

But all the good domains with ‘awesome’ were taken.  And then I remembered a drawing of a bakery from my daughter, and she titled it  ‘The Osom Bakery’.

The misspelling is courtesy of my daughter.  But the ‘awesomness’ is a tribute to all the cool things women have done, and do every day, that can inspire and motivate young girls.
