Gobaith am wobr i Sally sy’n esiampl i ferched ym myd gwyddoniaeth

Mae Sally Hughes yn edrych ymlaen at yrfa ddifyr gyda Tata Steel ym Mhort Talbot ac yn gobeithio ysbrydoli merched eraill i ddilyn gyrfa wyddonol.

Sally oedd yr unig ferch mewn grŵp o brentisiaid technegol a gychwynnodd gyda’r cwmni ym Mhort Talbot ym mis Medi 2016 a dywed na fu’n hawdd llwyddo mewn amgylchedd mor wrywaidd.

Fodd bynnag, mae’r ferch ifanc 19 oed o Bort Talbot yn benderfynol o gyflawni ei photensial trwy fanteisio ar bob cyfle a gaiff.
