Emmy Noether was a famous female mathematician and scientist. She was renown for her ground-breaking findings with algebra and physics. While growing up she actually wasn’t a stand-out student and was not even known for her academics, rather she was known for being friendly, clever and she was well liked. And although she was near-sighted and spoke with a lisp, Emmy Noether was very passionate about math. Growing up in a completely different time period, she would face a ton of adversity through an era of sexism in her line of work. In fact, there were only 2 women in her entire school, including herself. She was only allowed to audit classes and needed permission from her professors in order to attend. Upon passing her graduation exam, she would go on to teach in the Mathematics department without pay. She was a woman on a mission, and her determination was vital to her story. With her sheer persistence and gut wrenching passion, she would go on to surpass huge discoveries and contributions to the world of abstract algebra and theoretical physics. So much so, that she would even be regarded by Albert Einstein himself as “The most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced,”.
#MoralOfTheStory: Sometimes you have to create new paths, be willing to be misunderstood, and go against the grain. As long as your doing the things you love and they feel right within, then go and make a dent on the universe!
We thought this was fitting, and hilarious…
