Click play above for the BBC’s short video story on Daniela Sáez, an electronic engineering student from Chile. At 12, she became interested in robotics and enrolled in a self-taught robotics workshop. Since then, she’s made a robot suit made up of sensors that allows blind people to perceive color and shape, and is currently looking for funding for a robotic arm prototype she’s building for amputees. She says building robots is “literally her dream.” (Thanks to subscriber Stuart Rowe for the submission!)

Making sure you saw our directory of creatives & small business owners!
This week I’m going to put a spotlight on the dozens of small businesses and creators that have been curated in our new directory: Help a Latina Secure the Bag. In case you missed it: last week we had a special issue for Latina Equal Pay Day which included a new directory of Latina or femme-owned small businesses that you can support ASAP if you want to put your money behind Latina-owned businesses. Consider checking out the list when shopping this holiday season, or generally making decisions about where your money goes throughout the year.
