I want to know what she'd say to other girls in the same situation. She turns to look straight down the camera, to address all of those girls and women who've suffered violence, and says: "To all the girls and women who have suffered like I have, please speak up! Don't let anyone get away with it. Talk to someone you trust, who believes in you - and someone you know can make a difference. Let's show society we don't have to stay quiet."
As an arts aficionada taking STEM subjects - in my case mathematics and information engineering, and computer science later this year - I've noticed several beliefs that people who tend to avoid STEM hold.

In recent months, education in Myanmar has dominated headlines.

Growing numbers of people are becoming aware - and becoming angry - of injustices that are based simply on sex, both in the UK and worldwide.
