ROLE MODELS | Heather Flores- Engineer | PBS KIDS

When she was young, Heather Flores had one, single guiding principal that helped her achieve her dream of becoming an engineer: always choose the harder path.

When her fellow classmates were reading children’s books, she was pouring over novels written by Isaac Asimov and Stephen Hawking. It was this dedication to pursuing knowledge and her advanced aptitude that helped Heather complete both a Bachelors and Masters degree in engineering.

After more than 17 years at Ford, Heather and her team have designed hundreds of vehicles to run more safely and efficiently. #YouCanBeAnything
