Muslim Women In S.T.E.M Episode 26 With Sobia Hussain A Creative Entrepreneur
This week's Episode with Sobia Hussian from The Olive Tree Soap company is unlike the previous episodes of the Muslim Women In S.T.E.M because Sobia is not in a traditional S.T.E.M. field she is a creative entrepreneur and mom who loves S.T.E.M. and found her own way to be a part of this movement of Women in S.T.E.M. Sobia's soap making takes a lot of knowledge, hard work, and creativity not to mention careful calculations and mixing ingredients to make the perfect all Natural organic soaps.
