Too often, young women give up, alter, modify, or deviate from a dream they once had to pursue a path of least resistance and most acceptance. To counter this not only is it important to provide young women with mentorship and guidance, but it is also increasingly vital to create a community that can provide strength and encouragement  which is so often needed to stay connected to ones aspirations. Be it STEMM, Business, or Vocational education, South Asian women need not give up on what they have the potential to achieve. I was excited to hear that LotusSTEMM is working to build community and awareness in the space and am even more excited to be a part of this exciting initiative. I could have only wished to come across such a platform during my own university years.
