And she has been recognized in both the Alberta Legislative Assembly, the Canadian Senate, and the Parliament of Canada for her efforts. 

Sophia Fairweather has reached nearly 350000+ ( ok I have lost count), and as you can tell is very motivated youngster who is using STEM Innovation to get youth and especially girls in to Technology and Engineering as well as leadership by opening doors, role modeling and setting an example to both parents and youth. She is showing that "Innovation does NOT Discriminate" and is for every one regardless of age, lifestyle, and culture. She has created and sold 4 products, her favorites being the Windshield BandAid, Funcro, and now an Air Quality System which is new new and is still in R&D .... and is looking for partners to assist other youth like her .

Her happiest moments have come from influencing parents and youth about "What is possible !!" and showing them 'That they are not alone !!!"; as well as influencing the Government of Canada to open up an $11 million dollar fund and grant process for girls in STEM which is opening up more doors for girls like her though the Minister Maryam Monsef's announcement in the Budget Implementation Act."
