MILC members Natalie Rodriguez and Dr. Ayesha Saleem named finalists for this year's CBC Manitoba's Future 40 Awards. Natalie co-directs the IMiC project for the Azad Lab. When asked about advice for tackling big projects, she says "Dare to dream. Dare to shoot for the moon and then go beyond that. Never let someone tell you you aren't good enough, you can't, or you won't." Ayesha, an assistant professor at UM and research scientist at CHRIM, is passionate about teaching younger students and supports underrepresented minorities in STEM. Congratulations Natalie and Ayesha on being recognized for your hard work that is making a difference in the lives of Manitobans!
