Tojan Rahhal, Proving Everyone Wrong
Play • 44 min
Being a Muslim woman in STEM who wears a hijab, Tojan is used to getting pointed glances and invasive questions. But Tojan molded those moments into opportunities to educate. Now she's combining her passions to shatter pre-conceived notions. "My dad, from the day we were born, called us doctor," Tojan says with a laugh. Although STEM fields are known for having very few women in them, Tojan never felt that a biomedical engineering degree was out of her reach. Now Tojan uses her business to empower and educate young people. She hopes to create classrooms that a younger Tojan would've felt comfortable in. Her secret? Open dialogue and a lot of hard work. Listen in to see how Tojan stayed motivated. ProFresh Podcast is a product of Hoot Design Co., a full service branding, advertising and marketing agency. Know a badass female business owner?
