Transforming Africa through numerical modelling

Diane was a high school math teacher who understood instinctively the power of inspiring students to solve problems using math and sciences. She was compelled to further her scholarship with two Masters degrees and is now studying for her PhD at the University of Ottawa.

Diane came to Canada after graduating from AIMS Cameroon.

She was inspired during a visit by the Rt. Hon. Michaëlle Jean, former Governor General of Canada and Chancellor of the University of Ottawa. Jean told her story of struggle as a refugee to Canada and how teachers and education made the difference.

Diane has become a powerful example and advocate for women to excel in STEM disciplines.

At AIMS our students and alumni are our greatest indicators of success. We are proud to have produced 1,512 graduates, one-third of whom are women. Our alumni hail from 43 African nations, and are fast becoming leaders in academia and industry across Africa and around the globe.

Our remarkable success rate will continue with the support of donors like you. There are thousands of deserving students with incredible drive to solve challenges who have some of the most remarkable stories, but they need you to help them realize their dreams.

“Women can do it, succeeding in STEM fields has nothing to do with gender. Do not let anyone discourage you."
