Meghana, 17, Massachusetts/New York/Saudi Arabia:
"If I weren’t afraid, I would ask the questions that occupy my mind.
I firmly believe that asking questions is the key to learning. Whether in a classroom at school, at a meeting at work, or simply with a group of friends, people should never be afraid to find answers to their doubts. However, despite knowing that asking questions is a good thing, I find myself fearing the judgment by the person, or people, I am speaking to. In this day and age, women should not feel uncomfortable or scared of asking questions. Come on, ladies— let YOUR curiosity lead you to learn about the world YOU live in!”
