Growing up, I loved science. It was one of my favorite classes, and I strongly considered a career along that path, but I was actively dissuaded by an educator at my school. We need more programs in place to encourage young girls to enter these fields, to tell them that it's okay to dream of these things. But, I would also like to see similar programs from the arts targeted to boys. As much as I was pushed away from math and science, my male classmates were pushed away from art, literature, and music. There needs to be a balance.
