52. Changing Careers, Being ESEA & Supporting Kids in STEM with Natalie Cheung

Tiffany Dawson

I wanted to interview Natalie Cheung for the longest time on my podcast! After meeting her by chance online, we realised we had so much in common, and so much to add to each other.

While Natalie still contributes so much to the development of STEM careers, she had to make a difficult decision to leave her engineering job to find that path.

I also wanted to chat to her about the challenges of being ESEA (east & south east Asian) in a mainly caucasian workplace. Natalie hosts her own podcast, Yellow Bee Pod which explores these ideas in depth.

Having worked in supporting industry leaders inspire the next generation in STEM, I wanted to get Natalie's views on how we can best support school kids.


Episode Summary:

  • Natalie's journey into STEM
  • What it like to leave engineering
  • How being of ethnic minority affected Natalie's experience in the workplace
  • The challenges school kids interested in STEM face and how we can help
