Despite being just as qualified as male peers in the science and engineering fields, female students are looked down upon and discouraged in those fields. The environment in these fields gives female students a feeling of Imposter Syndrome, as if they did not belong in these areas just because of their gender.
As a female student in a science major, I wish I could say this is not something I’ve experienced. But this has often been an unfortunate reality that I have faced.
