对于一个年轻女孩来说,如果梦想在科学、科技、工程、数学(STEM)等领域取得成就无疑困难重重。为了实现梦想,她们需要面对许多男孩们没有的障碍。但对于新时代的女孩们来说,没有什么可以阻止她们的决心。在微软最新的广告里,几个小女孩讲述了她们希望改变这个世界的梦想,无论周遭的环境如何,她们都决定要坚持下去。

It’s not easy being a young girl with dreams of pursing a career in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM). There are plenty of obstacles she’ll need to overcome to achieve her goals. But the next generation is sure they’ll meet them — no matter what. In a new Microsoft ad, the company shows different girls who are excited about changing the world and determined to do it despite the odds.

视频开始是几个小女孩被提问希望如何改变世界。有人想要找到医治乳腺癌的方法,还有关于水资源的担忧等等。微软接下来让她们通过VR技术探索她们的兴趣,小女孩们看起来都非常兴奋。然而,接下来她们被告知了一个残酷的事实:仅有6.7%的女性能获得STEM领域的学位,她们有极大的几率根本无法实现这些梦想。女孩们纷纷低下了头……想要知道后来发生了什么?那就赶紧来看一看吧!

The video begins by asking a group of girls what they want to change in the world. One girl wants to find a cure for breast cancer, another is worried about fresh water. Microsoft then lets them explore these interests. Then the girls sit back down and they’re shown a screen that reads as follows: “Odds are you won’t solve these problems. Only 6.7 percent of women graduate with STEM degrees.” At first, the girls are crestfallen. Watch the video above to see how the girls rise up despite this statistic.
