Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, recently gave young women some very valuable career advice on Quora.

"I think the most important advice for girls or women who want to consider a  career in tech is really the same advice for all women and girls  anywhere - that the key thing is to believe in your own abilities," she says.

"Studies show that women often underestimate their own abilities…If women believe they can succeed in tech, they  will.  And so many amazing technical leaders already do."

Another Facebook engineer, Nora Mullaney, offers additional advice.

She tells young women, “The best way to learn in the tech field is to jump in and build things, so you should go ahead and do that as much as possible…One of the nice things about engineering is that you can usually prove an idea is better by building it.  Don’t be afraid to ignore nay-sayers and just go for it.

Here’s Sandberg’s full answer:
