This infographic displays quotes from a diverse group of celebrities promoting careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These male and female celebrities of different racial and ethnic groups include professional athletes, actors, authors, musicians, and models. This infographic was inspired by Verizon's #weneedmore campaign, which featured LeBron James, Drew Brees, Adriana Lima, and Zendaya. Many youth aspire to become celebrities and are aware of careers related to athletics, acting, and music. However, far less youth aspire to become STEM professionals and are aware of the countless career opportunities in STEM fields. This infographic is not meant to discourage youth from aspiring to become athletes, actors, musicians or any other celebrities, but to showcase the growing need for more STEM professionals.
