Throughout my sixteen years of education, from class I to my undergraduate degree, I barely talked to the girls in my classroom. Though some boys would talk to girls without hesitation, I had some psychological barriers to interacting with them. Moreover, I also led a group in my class that did not talk to girls. Now, after all these years, I wonder what stopped me from talking to girls. Why did I stop my friends from doing so? Did it have something to do with my parents or my teachers? Was it the effect films had on me? In this article, I share some experiences that affected me as a student, and which may still be affecting other children today. The article also highlights the impact of gender segregation on the class in general and on the holistic learning of students in particular. Finally, it also suggests ways of bridging these segregations within the classroom.
