    Dear EngineerGirl, I am a Business administrator but I am attracted to Engineering and decided to study engineering in a master´s degree. I have been told that I do not have the personality to be an engineer, that I am not tough enough, not serious enough, specifically that I have ¨a hello kitty personality¨. What advice can you give me so I can fit in more in a tough work environment? I do not know what to do to appear more serious without changing my personality.
