More female international students pursue STEM degrees at US universities
from U.S. News & World Report
As a sick child suffering from severe asthma, Indian national Tvisha Gangwani says her parents never pressured her to focus on academics. She got by with average grades — except in math and science, where she excelled. One math teacher, who became her mentor, saw Gangwani's potential and encouraged her to pursue science, technology, engineering and math, the so-called STEM fields. She followed this advice and enrolled at the University of Southern California, where she is now pursuing a bachelor's in electrical engineering with a minor in math. Gangwani is among the growing number of female international students pursuing STEM degrees at American universities.
