Niessa, age 23, Student
â€œThis is a Manâ€™s Worldâ€
Niessa studies maritime engineering where almost all her peers are boys. And thatâ€™s the problem. At her university, the male students judge any girl who tries to make herself look even slightly attractive, or dares to look like anything other than a standard â€œstereotypical engineering studentâ€.
Niessaâ€™s determined to succeed and would like to look attractive but she fears being ostracised the way sheâ€™s seen other girls go downâ€¦ She wants to be accepted, respected and liked, so she dresses as a â€œslobby girlâ€ to fit in.
Niessa needs to overcome her fears about judgement. She needs help to style herself in a way where she can embrace her right to look good as a young, attractive woman and still be respected in a male dominated sector.
