Woman looking to get into cyber security?

Hi everyone, I am a woman looking to get into cyber security. I know that usually the tech world is male dominated (not trying to offend anyone here),and I have heard horror stories from other women. I just wanted to come ask any fellow woman in cyber security what’s your experience? How do you like it? What’s the biggest challenge you faced?
I am currently changing my degree in the fall for computer science. I’ve always been fascinated with technology even from a young age. I wanted to get into computer science or I.T. for a long time, but I have always doubted myself and I am scared that as a woman I wouldn’t be taken seriously. It wasn’t into a few months ago that my husband persuaded me to follow my first dream and take the leap. I appreciate anyone who takes the time out to answer this. Thank you.

I know the question is not for me but I just wanted to encourage you to do this. Some of my best, most trusted, most respected colleagues and friends are women who have chosen to enter, and succeed within the umbrella of Information Security. It isn’t as rare as you might think.
