Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
'Girls in STEAM' is my research project; (STEAM est Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design, and Math). It focuses on the young school-going girls in Rawalpindi/Islamabad, Pakistan. The study would collect data on gender gaps and various issues girls may face when pursuing STEAM education.
It's all part of making a better world.
The research gathered would provide valuable insight to help policymakers and stakeholders to reduce girls' underrepresentation in STEAM by closing the gap by providing the skills, confidence, opportunities, and support to succeed from a young age.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by the girls and encourage them to participate more in STEAM fields in the schools in Pakistan.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Change in the school culture where girls would be encouraged in STEAM fields.
More support in terms of guidance and infrastructure would be available in STEAM fields.
Greater number of girls registering in STEAM programs.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
By seeing a greater number of girls participating in STEAM education.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
