About the Author & Book
Cornell College of Arts & Sciences alumna, Melissa Borza recently released her first novel, Fashion Figures: How Missy the Mathlete Made the Cut, aimed at encouraging young girls to engage in STEM subjects. Melissa is passionate about addressing the gender gap in tech and believes we have to start much sooner than in college or even high school. Research shows that girls as young as 8 and 9 are opting out of STEM tracks without any awareness of what may be lost down the line. Melissa wants to help address that issue! 
    
Melissa’s book is available on Amazon and for sale at the book signing for $15 (cash only), Fashion Figures: How Missy the Mathlete Made the Cut is a perfect holiday gift for the pre-teen girls in your life. In this book, Missy Maker is a sixth grade girl who loves math. She’s afraid to let that be known because she also loves fashion and doesn’t think the two can mix. Learn how Missy Maker overcomes social pressures to follow her dreams and become her best self.
