Innovator shows why she is a STEM inspiration

ENTREPRENEUR Kamelia Singh, who founded the children’s education and entertainment venture Cosmic Superstars, has received a national award for her work just a year after launching the business.

She has received an Inspirational Woman in STEM award which promotes science, technology, engineering and maths. The ceremony at the House of Lords saw the Northampton businesswoman rubbing shoulders with the likes of businesswoman and politician Baroness Sandy Verma, MPs and other STEM sector leaders.

Ms Singh’s award recognised her dedication to her career in the tech industry, her advocacy for diversity and inclusivity in STEM and her efforts to build a community of parents, guardians and businesses.

“It has been an amazing journey so far; studying at the University of Northampton, working, consulting and advising in the tech industry with organisations global and local, large and small,” said Ms Singh pictured left.

“I love technology innovation and the positive difference it can make to our everyday lives, our world and beyond. Tech is ever-changing, innovation is always being challenged and there are so many exciting opportunities for our next generation to influence.”

Ms Singh has also developed her work championing young people in #STEAM – combining science and arts.

“A great passion of mine has always been to inspire our young people and make a difference in our world in some way but I was not too sure how until my daughter Amariyah inspired me with her love of space,” Ms Singh said. “And I thought ‘That’s it’.

The concept is all about young minds getting together, talking STEM, getting industry leaders involved, undertaking projects that address some of the hot topics in the industry and using creative thinking to bring it alive while having fun along the way, building confidence and interesting careers.”

After hosting a pilot event earlier this year, Ms Singh is planning a full launch of Cosmic Superstars in Northampton later this year

“We are getting the foundations in place from the positive feedback of our pilot event earlier this year and revamping the website,” she said.
