Big Dream follows the intimate stories of seven young women who are breaking barriers and overcoming personal challenges to follow their passions in science, math, computing & engineering. From small town Iowa to the bustling streets of the Middle East, Big Dream immerses viewers in a world designed by and for the next generation of girls. Big Dream shows the struggles of these seven young women, in their own words, through video diaries and verité moments, and the self-confidence and dedication it takes for them to persevere to reach their goal. Each of these girls defies the stereotype of what it means to be an over-achieving woman in any field and is a wonderful role model for girls all over the world.
