The first female mathematician to receive the prestigious Fields Medal is Maryam Mirzakhani from Stanford University. Mirzakhani said: "I will be happy if it encourages young female scientists and mathematicians. I am sure there will be many more women winning this kind of award in coming years." Mirzakhani was born and raised in Tehran, where as a young girl she dreamed of becoming a writer.
