Natasha Nuralanis from PPSEAWA Malaysia was selected by PPSEAWA International  to receive a Young Women’s Fund award in February 2021.  She is the project leader for developing an iAgree mobile learning application to support the online learning needs of underserved children from two rural schools in Sarawak, Malaysia. The app opens opportunities for girls facing several local language and cultural barriers to STEM learning, including an unconscious bias towards women as lacking or uninterested in technical skills.
