Muslim women working in the Aerospace industry
Hello, I read your reply to a different question about muslim women working in the Aerospace industry. I am currently a sophomore doing Chemical Engineering, but I really wanted to switch to Aerospace Engineering, yet my parents claim that I won't be able to do anything with my degree since I am a muslim girl and I wear a scarf. Is this true? How can I convince them otherwise? Thank you.
