All of the girls had big plans although they didn’t have everything worked out. They all wanted to have a higher education and go to the university. The girls didn’t see being a woman as a problem. They said that it could be an advantage in whatever line of work they wanted. They saw their own will to study and work hard to get where they wanted as the big problem. If they didn’t work hard and put time and effort in to it then it would be hard to do what they wanted. They listen to their parents but they don’t let them make their choices for them. We think it is positive that the young girls of today are forth going and have big professional dreams. They know what they want and they will do everything to get there and they don’t see gender as an obstacle. (Less)
