Ava Canney

Advocate for females in STEM

Ava is a 17-year-old student who is passionate about many things, especially science and engineering. As well as being an advocate for females in STEM, Ava feels strongly about using her voice to change the current educational system in Northern Ireland. She believes that the opportunities provided by the nourishing and loving all ability educational environment that she attended shaped her into the young woman she is today. Being a part of an all ability school Ava believes she has been given opportunities she never would have dreamed about such as: travelling to America at the mere age of 14 as 1 of the top 25 brightest young minds in the world, being selected as 1 of 3 girls in the world to be a trailblazer for female inventors everywhere, and gaining experience in an award winning choir- making memories she will cherish for life.
