@FutureMrsV2016:  I struggle with this daily. I’m the only girl in my office. And I’m also the youngest person. I’m a mechanical engineer, and while I may be somewhat “green” (I’ve been in my profession for about 4 years now) I am very much a go-getter and fast learner. There are men here that have been here for 30+ years that know less about what is going on than I do. When I try to get things done, a lot of them call me a bitch behind my back. They think I’m just some snot nosed kid.

My manager is awesome and knows my potential so he puts me as a lead in groups, but then I’m half the age of everyone I’m supposed to be bossing around. Makes life hard. But I knew it would be like this going in. I think it makes me a better person. I’ll work my way to be the head engineer in the company and rub it in their faces. Cool
