Thank you for your question. There has been some difficulties I faced on the journey of being as a female Engineering student. There was once my TA in undergraduate doubted whether I has other boys to help me write my programming assignment. There was also a professor looked at me and questioned: "You look like this and you can write program?"
Both times I felt really frustrated. However, now when looking back on those things, I'm glad I turned them into motivation instead of frustration later on.
While regarding to me coming from a foreign country, no one has ever doubted my capability because of that. And I am very proud of being a Taiwanese fighting in the United States :)
