Being a woman should never hold you back!! Women are an asset to the STEM professions , so many companies offer scholarships for women in STEM, also being a woman in this day and time should give you an advantage because a lot of companies are looking for a diverse workforce. My biggest advise for you is to be the best so there is no question, and you will be hired based on your skills and not your gender.

Nowadays, I don't really think there is anything to hold you back because of the gender. There are a lot of woman leaders in the Tech world, e.g. Safra A. Catz who is the CEO of Oracle, etc. It is more determined by the capability rather than gender.

Working in STEM world, being creative and innovative is more important than gender.

Good Luck! Hope this helps!

Hi Brooke,
There's nothing you can't do, and this is not because something hasn't been done yet that it's not to be done!
Most of the people saying "you can't" are frustrated by their own failures, and that's none of your business.
Explore, innovate, keep going on, be proud and ignore the sad ones.
