I am writing this post to talk about the current scenario of gender ratio in STEM. When we join college the first thing we observe that there are very few girls. Sometimes, It is really hard to get someone to discuss your work, your personal and professional problems, even, It is very hard to get a partner for group projects.
Many girls feel that STEM is not a place for them and start quitting. Please don’t quit because you are not alone, there are many more who have been through the same situation. They also thought like you, but they opted not to quit and continued their journey to win.
There are nice talks by the girls who have come forward to share their stories. I am sharing these with you all as they might motivate you to continue your journey in STEM.
