To this day, I get very emotional whenever I see an organization that encourages girls to go into STEM fields. In my experience, the discouragement only increased as I got farther and farther into the occupation, becoming blatantly discriminatory at the college level and intolerable in the corporate environment. Women have so much to offer, but our world is taught that women have nothing worth sharing. Even I believed, for a very long time, that I was the exception from “other girls.” I’m not.
Women are brilliant. It’s our culture that sets itself against that shine.
