BVA senior vice president named UK STEM ambassador
Daniella Dos Santos has been named 2021 STEM Learning ambassador.
"I hope that my talk helps to show that science is for everyone" - Daniella Dos Santos.

BVA senior vice president Daniella Dos Santos has been named 2021 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Learning ambassador.

The announcement comes ahead of British Science Week (5-14 March), during which Daniella will give an insight into her journey into veterinary medicine and the many different career paths it can offer. 

Small animal vet Daniella studied molecular genetics before applying for veterinary school. She funded most of her veterinary education herself and will use the talk to speak about her unusual route into the profession.

Her presentation will form part of a series of free STEM Learning events taking place over the coming week. STEM Learning is the UK's largest provider of education and careers support in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Commenting on her new role, Daniella said: “I’d always wanted to be a vet; it is one of many amazing careers that science can lead you into. There is a misconception that you need to be really “brainy” to get into veterinary medicine, but I would say that you just need to have an inquisitive mind.”

“I am passionate about diversifying the STEM arena, and here at BVA, we are proud to be working to make the veterinary profession into a more diverse and inclusive space. I feel privileged to be a STEM ambassador, and I hope that my talk helps to show that science is for everyone, whoever you are, and whatever your background.”
