About Michele Ong

Hello STEAM Powered Village,

It’s Michele Ong, your STEAM Powered host.

Most of my days are spent as a freelance web developer and mother to a bright and creative toddler who seems destined for spy school or theatre school (probably both, at the same time). What remaining time I have is spent working on STEAM Powered so that I can introduce you to more amazing women in STEAMM fields who are doing what they do best. It's a thing I’m loving a whole lot because I not only have the opportunity to speak to inspiring women, but I get to share that with you all, and hopefully inspire some of you as well.

Practically though, it takes a lot of time and resources to produce. STEAM Powered is quite literally a one-woman show from reaching out to and researching our guests, through to editing and preparing all the episodes for release. Then there’s all the administrative stuff, the promotional stuff, and the infrastructure requirements. And we’re not even doing fancy-pants 4K, a small detail, but one for which my laptop and its ageing video card are eternally grateful.

By becoming a patron, you’ll be helping to keep the lights on for this community I hope to build. Every bit will help. And as our Village grows, I would like to be able to increase the frequency of these shows and expand on the type of content I can bring to you. I’ve spent more than a year dreaming about STEAM Powered, so I may have a couple of ideas on the cards, and I really want to make them happen for all of you.

For being a part of this community, and for your support, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.


PS. For tier benefits that include public acknowledgement of your support, if you don't want a call out, or your name published on the website, please let me know.
