Once upon a time, there was a cartoon of a man who used a rocket strapped to his back to fly. This inspired Ghanaian technology entrepreneur Regina Honu to make a rocket for herself. When she presented her creation to a teacher, he told her, “Girls don’t build rockets.”
Regina Honu is now the founder of a Ghanaian software development company. However, she advocates for girls in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Consequently, she received the Buffett Institute for Global Studies’ award for emerging global leaders Tuesday in Scott Hall. Buffett Institute director Bruce Carruthers said by presenting recipients with the $10,000 award, the institute hopes to celebrate and encourage the recipients’ initiatives.
