This is another amazing but yet unique story of a woman in stem. Not only is the amazing @msgcfiesta2018 an up and coming engineer, but she is also an active participant in beauty pageants and an active advocate of more inclusion in the #stemfield. Here’s her story on this wonderful #tuesdaymorning.... Well, luckily, I haven’t had too many downs. The people around me have been so supportive of my goals and have only helped me out. In today’s world, while still difficult to fit into the boys club known as STEM, being a woman in the field comes with so many opportunities; scholarships, internships, and opportunities are starting to be more inclusive of young women aspiring to be in the STEM career field. The biggest piece of advise I could give to young girls wanting to pursue this goal is this: never feel out of place, you’ve had two work 2x as hard as your male peers and you have 100% earned your spot their, so own it. #newyork#womenempowerment#womeninstem#stem#stemeducation
#historyquote buffs out there, we see you. Here is a fuller version of Dr. Mae Jemison’s quote: "Never be limited by other people's limited imaginations...If you adopt their attitudes, then the possibility won't exist because you'll have already shut it out ... You can hear other people's wisdom, but you've got to re-evaluate the world for yourself." – At the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students, November 2009 #historyheroblast#womanshistorymonth#maejamison#believeinyourself#space#nasa#astronaut#stem#stemgirls#womanshistory#womanshistorymonth2019#quotestoliveby#quotes#quotestagram#blackhistory#blackgirlmagic@blackhistoryforkids@nasa#womeninstem#womeninscience#womeninspace#feminist#feministkids
An amazing woman of STEM! 🚺 Grace Hopper was an American computer scientist, mathematician and US Navy rear admiral who was a pioneer in developing computer technology, helping to devise UNIVAC I and naval applications for COBOL (common-business-oriented language). Grace earned a Ph.D. in mathematics from Yale University and was a Professor of Mathematics at Vassar College, before joining the Naval Reserve in 1943. She became a lieutenant and was assigned to the Bureau of Ordnance’s Computation Project at Harvard University, where she worked on Mark I, the first large-scale automatic calculator and a precursor of electronic computers. After a moth infiltrated the circuits of Mark I, she coined the infamous term bug to refer to unexplained computer failures. (Source www.britannica.com/biography/Grace-Hopper)
Motivational Monday - STEM gets the rep of being a male-dominated field, but it boasts a long line of pioneering women. Check out these 5 famous female scientists who paved the way for women in STEM today! The list includes Marie Curie, Dr. Chien-Shiung Wu, Cecilia H. Payne-Gaposchkin, Dr. Mae Jemison and Antonia Novello. You can read up on these important scientists in the aritcle provided in our bio link.
Black history in America:. •14 generations of slavery • 4 generations of segregation • 2 generations of freedom. So when I, and we, get comments like- “Slavery ended a long time ago, why do black people use that excuse”, we cannot ignore our history. I was honored to sit on the Henriette Lacks panel today. Thank you @miz.honez_tea for pushing me to do this, the panel was soooo fun and I love speaking my ideas 💡 I realize half of y’all know I’m a real advocate and half of y’all don’t, so I’m going to be getting LOT more vocal on this here platform, and I hope to start big and important conversations. This reminded me about the campaign @earlcampbellmd started #fromthreefifthsaperson 👇🏾 . . For the purposes of calculating a States total population for representation in Congress and taxing, Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution of 1787 declared that “three fifths” of all other persons (slaves) would be added to the number of free persons. . Amidst so many troubling stories in the media these days, the purpose of this campaign is to serve as a reminder of where we’ve come from, our progress, our capabilities, and our true worth. We’re not only whole human being, but whole professionals. I encourage my kinds and Queens of all professions to join in on this movement and let’s spread positivity.
Made good progress writing tests for our playground VR scene today. Remember, writing good, easy to understand tests is just as important as writing good, clean code. Always write your tests, even though it may not seem as fun or exciting at first. But after you're halfway through your project you'll see the value and be thankful that you took the time. Plus, who doesn't love a green tick 😃 - - - - - #kayleighcodes#buildingdevskills#coding#programmer#developer#mumdev#femdevs#girlswhocode#womenwhocode#womenintech#womeninstem#playmodetests#unitytests#developingtests#vrtesting#VR#automatingvr
How beautiful is the desert with the snowy mountain behind it? 😍🌵⛰ ❄️😍 ••• I just got back from a weekend of field work at Blackhawk Landslide in Lucerne Valley, CA! We were trying to characterize the slide by looking at gravity, elevation, electrical resistivity and ground penetrating radar (GPR) data! We’re hoping we collected good data so we can better understand this massive landslide! It was a great weekend hiking, hanging out with friends and conducting geophysical research! ⛰⚒🌲🌵🤟🏽🥃😊✨ ••• #science#geology#geoscience#geo#geophysics#womeninSTEM#womenwhohike#hiking#rocks#womenwhoexplore#nature#travel#hike#landslide#limestone#blackhawklandslide#lucernevalley#girlswhohike#desert#womenwhotravel#RoamWild#womenempowerment#womenempoweringwomen#california#geologicalsciences#geologist#la#snow#wild
Ready for a truth 💣? You can not out work bad nutrition. Trust me, I tried. And I never got the results I wanted. That's because 80% of results come from the kitchen, not the gym. Those results could be weight loss, muscle gain, toning, etc. Still the kitchen. I love food. I enjoy eating. I am NOT in to deprivation. PORTION CONTROL was the missing piece for me. It wasn't until I started using these little coloured boxes that I was able to get lasting results. This program is about a lifestyle, not a diet. And that means it is sustainable in the long term. (Yep, I eat ALL food groups, including carbs 🥞,.cheese🧀, and WINE 🍷). Have you been looking for a way to break your emotional eating habits? Kick your sugar addiction? Learn how to fuel your body PROPERLY on a vegan or vegetarian philosophy? Need help feeding your family nutritious meals they will actually enjoy? A brand new nutrition program is launching TODAY! I just know it's going to be a total game changer for so many. Want to know more? Drop a 🙋♀️ and I'll send you some. .
As I was working out today, I thought “WTF why is this so hard.” And then I remembered...I wasn’t able to complete this workout the past two weeks🤷🏻♀️ . Between travel and my mini-“procedure” at the doctor’s, Mondays have been rough recently. But the one lesson I’ve learned over the past two years? We can beat ourselves up for what we didn’t do. . I acknowledged that my Tuesday would be better, and I left Monday in the past✌🏼 . If you have regrets or mistakes along the way, acknowledge them and then move on. No one is perfect, girlfriend, and there’s no reason to continually beat yourself up! . #BalancedandHealthE . #gymtimeismytime#eveningworkout#forgiveyourself#sosweaty#itsgymtime

Mathematician Monday! This weeks mathematician: Emmy Noether Lived from 1882 to 1935 Emmy Noether, a German mathematician, originally planned to teach French and English, however, she ultimately decided to study mathematics at the University of Erlangen. At the time, with the permission of the instructor, women were only allowed to audit classes. A few years later, when women were allowed to attend full classes, Noether returned and received her PhD. She then remained at Erlangen to work on her own research (without pay), as well as, asset her father, Max Noether. She later went on to lecture at Göttingen, however she could only do so in classes under David Hilbert’s name. She taught at the University of Göttingen until every Jewish professors was dismissed by the Nazi regime. Many mathematical developments were brought together by her work in higher algebra. It led to many concepts including “Noether’s Theorem,” “Noetherian rings,” and “Noetherian induction.” After her passing, Einstein wrote “Fräulein Noether was the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began” Sources: britannica.com cosmosmagazine.com https://www.mathnasium.ca/kerrisdale #EmmyNoether#Einstein#WomenInSTEM#MathmaticianMonday#mathematician#math

My favorite park in all of Paris : les buttes chaumont 🏞️ I quickly climbed up to get a shot at the setting sun ☀ . I went to a high-school this afternoon to do some outreach work 📝 The kids were really interested in my research project and my very atypical academic background 🦄 (I was originally studying art....should write about this one day 😅) . They had so many questions about what they could do after high-school 💡 Most of them didn't even think it was possible to "do anything" (and even less to work in science) because they thought their grades were just too low (which isn't true) but I think we got some of them motivated again 💪🏻 It was still so shocking to see a whole class of kids being so pessimistic in the first place... I'm even more motivated about my outreach work now!! ✨ . After that, I had an hour to kill before joining some friends at a restaurant 🍴 so I went to my favorite park, which was right next to the high-school.... Coincidence? 🤔 I think not, I was meant to have a great day 😁 . #scicomm#outreach#scientificoutreach#womeninstem#womeninscience#womeninbiology#phddiary#phdjourney#phdstudent#phdlife#butteschaumont#paris#photography#parisphoto

𝙄 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙂𝙤𝙙, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙄 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙥𝙚𝙖𝙘𝙚✨ ——————————————————————————— This was my momma’s necklace, and I haven’t taken it off in 3 years. After my mom died I completely lost myself, and when I lost myself I lost all contact with God. I was raised Christian, My nana and benga (I couldn’t say grandma as a toddler🤦🏻♀️) would preach the Bible, we always bowed our heads to pray before supper, and we always prayed before we laid. I knew God, I knew what I believed in. And then my mom died, and I began struggling with my faith. ——————————————————————————— I asked myself “why?” If there is a God why would he take MY mom? What did I do to deserve this?! One day I woke up and decided to stop being angry with the Lord and instead try and understand his plan. His plan literally rewrote my WHOLE story and paved the streets that I’m walking right now, including pursuing medical school. Every single event that occurred after February 23 would never have happened if God didn’t need to call my mom back home. ——————————————————————————— I miss her everyday, and there are numerous instances where I need her and will need her, but God truly does have a plan for every single one of us. This post is not to shove religion in anyone’s faces or to say “you have to believe in God!” But it is me saying find SOMETHING to believe in whether it be God or someone/something else, I promise you will eventually find peace and understand that the happenings in your life, are not intended to break you, but to help mold you. How you handle it, now that’s up to you. ——————————————————————————— #premed#premedstudent#premedproblems#faith#choosejoy#choosehappiness#medicine#womeninmedicine#womeninstem#blogger#bloggerstyle

Ada Lovelace wrote and published the first computer program, the Bernoulli number algorithm, and was the first to believe that the analytical engine could do more than just calculate. She was the first to grasp that anything could be converted into numbers, including letters and music and be manipulated by computer algorithms. She became friends with and was tutored by Mary Somerville, who helped her with modern mathematics. "Those who have learned to walk on the threshold of the unknown worlds, by means of what are commonly termed par excellence the exact sciences, may then, with the fair white wings of imagination, hope to soar further into the unexplored amidst which we live." #womeninstem#womenempoweringwomen#womenmotivation#womenempowerment#womeninscience#stemgirls#steminist#stem#femalemotivation#femaleempowerment#science#womenshistorymonth#iwd

Geochemist, Katsuko Saruhashi created an instrument that detected the first CO2 levels in seawater. She used this data to prove that radioactive fallout spreads due to the Earths water cycle, causing far more damage than previously anticipated and tightening regulations. She also researched peaceful uses of nuclear power. She tirelessly worked to raise the number and status of women scientists, especially in Japan, and established the Saruhashi Prize, given yearly to a woman scientist that serves as a role model to young female scientists. She also founded the Society of Japanese Women Scientists. "I wanted to highlight the capabilities of women scientists.

Day number 18 of #MarchMeetTheMaker is #MistakeOrLesson 👩🏫 . . . I think my biggest Beany Geek mistake so far was opening my Etsy shop without doing more research first. I was so excited to put my work out there that I didn’t think about how to market them or make more products. Currently my store still has one product and, let’s face it, my shop looks a bit naive 🤦♀️ . . . However, I’m learning from this. I’m updating my logo, planning on sending off for business cards this week, will be updating my shop to look more appealing and over all, I’d like to become more organised! 🗂 . . . On the bright side though, I am incredibly grateful for my 5 sales so far - I have some of the most supportive friends and family I could ever wish for 👨👩👧 . . . #beanygeek#stem#steminist#womeninstem#etsysellersofinstagram#etsyuk#womenwhomake#makersgonnamake#smallbiz#creativejourney#learningfrommistakes#indieillogang#indierollerMMTM

Alice Ball accomplished a great deal in her short life. She completed degrees in pharmaceutical chemistry and pharmacy and became the first African American and the first woman to graduate from the University of Hawaii with a master’s degree. Early in her studies, she successfully isolated the fatty acid compounds from Chaulmoogra oil, the only known treatment for leprosy at the time, which is now known to be the antimicrobial hydnocarpic acid. Until this point the treatment was only mildly effective. She made the first preparation of a water-soluble, injectable form of chaulmoogra oil. The treatment was used globally for 30 years before the development of different, more effective drugs, but Alice sadly never saw the results of her work. She died from an unknown illness at the age of 24. Ball wasn’t recognized for her discovery until 2000, when the University of Hawaii officially recognized the “Ball Method”, after years of chemist Arthur Dean, former President of the University, claiming it as his own. #womenshistorymonth#womenshistorymonth2019#womeninstem#womeninventors#mondaymotivation

Do you remember that time in high school when you thought “if I never write SOH CAH TOA again it’ll be too soon?” I remember thinking that to myself. And then I forgot trigonometry. I figured I’d never use it. We’ve been talking about the environment for as long as I can remember, and I turn 40 this year. Trying to parse climate change and our response for my kids is pretty challenging, and it’s made me think a lot more about how committed I am to change. I will always be a photographer, but now I’m also going back to school to learn how to put my hands on the problem more directly. There’s a lot of math involved and I’m starting at the bottom. It’s humbling. But here we go again. 😂 #motivationmonday#womeninstem#climatechangeisreal#partofthesolution#sohcahtoa

In honor of #WomensHistoryMonth, we are celebrating the pioneering women in tech. Katherine Johnson was born in West Virginia in 1918. She was always intrigued by numbers and recalled counting everything as a child. She graduated from high school at 14, and from college at 18. She was the first African-American woman to attend graduate school at West Virginia University after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of integration. After graduating, she worked as a teacher before being accepted as an early member of NASA (the National Advisory Committee). She went on to work at Langley Research Center’s Guidance and Navigation Department where her gifts in mathematics were put to excellent use. Her job title was “computer,” and her calculations were highly trusted in some of the first American space missions, including the Apollo Moon landing program. Katherine’s genius was so trusted that astronaut John Glenn only felt comfortable to take off to orbit around the Earth after Katherine had double-checked NASA’s electronic computer calculations. She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015, and was portrayed by Taraji P. Henson in the film ‘Hidden Figures.’ #iwd#womenintech#womeninstem#STEM#nasa#katherinejohnson#hiddenfigures#mathematics#coding#computer#cybersecurity#tech
This is Gabrielle @marchoftheplankton posting for UN Biodiversity! Diatoms are a type of phytoplankton that have cells made of glass (silica). The pores on each plankton cell are unique to individual species. If you zoom in you can see beautiful pores arranged on the centric diatom's frustule. These pores are pivotal in the organism 's physiochemical processes, like respiration and photosynthesis. @insidenatgeo@olympuslifescience@Schnetzerlab#Ocean#Oceanography#Science#Ecology#Marinebiology#Microbe#Microscope#Lab#Phd#Gradschool#Womeninstem#Womeninscience#Natgeo#Natgeoexplorer#Sciencetelling#Plankton#Scicomm#art#conservation#biodiversity#scuba

“Computing is too important to be left to men,” said Karen Sparck Jones, a pioneer of computer science who established the basis for search engines like Google. When most scientists were trying to make people use code to talk to computers, Karen Sparck Jones taught computers to understand human language instead. In the 1970s, she combined statistics with linguistics — an unusual approach at the time — to establish formulas that would program a computer to understand words that could have many meanings (like “field”). She introduced the concept of inverse document frequency — a founding principle of modern search engines — which counts the number of times a term is used in a document in order to determine its importance. Today, computer scientists are still citing her formulas and applying the ideas put forth in her writing to artificial intelligence research. 💻 For the 31 days of #WomensHistoryMonth, we’re highlighting the lives of 31 remarkable women you may not know, but should. #31daysofwomen | 📸: Computer Laboratory/University of Cambridge
Monday? Is that you again? While we’re hoping you crushed it and didn’t quite look like this 🤣, we can’t complain because we have a very exciting article in the works this week. You may have seen on our story this weekend that we were out and about scoping an article, and we are now working hard to get it out in the world. Stay tuned, we can’t wait to share with you.
We were given the VIP tour of Prosciutto Bar where premium ham is made, cured, and sold! This family business cares deeply about every aspect of their product, including the health and mental welfare of their animals. 🤗 They are fed only acorns (their fav food!) and are free range! I don’t eat pork but I recognize what a huge part of the food culture it is here and other places. Each of these hams can go for well over $200. They’re cured with a minimum amount of salt, pepper, and rice flour. So they’re also gluten free! It was a fun tour and I learned a lot. Also I loved my outfit. 🤷🏻♀️🇮🇹❤️
#detoxing // I did a little social media detox this past weekend so I could focus my energy on the plans for our new house.

And I hope you are excited for a whole lot of home and interior design content this month! 📷: @thelyonswood #thedoctorette#ncblogger#raleigh#raleighnc#durham#durhamnc#NCMAgram#raleighblogger#howdoyoumuseum#ihavethisthingwithmuseumpics#northcarolina#visitnc#thatsdarling#darlingdaily#darlingmovement#museum#peoplescreative#motivationmonday#womeninstem#phd
This week's #StudentSpotlight also doubles as a birthday shout out to our amazing Vyomika on her 17th birthday! Vyomika has been dancing since the age of 4 with her relationship to #dance growing even deeper and stronger as she continued to train with Farah Didi and dance with the #NooraniDanceCompany Vyomika is a mentor and assistant to #YasmeenKiKaliyaan , our youngest performing group. We are so appreciative of her energy and enthusiasm that always shines through! Outside of #kathak, Vyomika loves being a member of her #robotics team and somehow finds a way to balance her time between her commitment to robotics, dance, her family and friends and her academic responsibilities. Just yesterday she sent Farah Didi this message which exemplifies the ways that Vyomika and many students of Noorani Dance, and of the arts in general, benefit in so many ways from their study of the dance. “Namaskar Farah Didi! I wanted to let you know that I solo presented our robot and team to judges and we won the creative award which is a super competitive engineering design award. I’m really thankful for all my learning from kathak as it has helped so much with robotics and how much the Noorani Dance community has supported my involvement in robotics.” #WomeninStem#SupporttheArts#STEAM#EnligheningMindsandHeartsThroughtheArts
` W E S T E R N B L O T ´ __ "Western blot is my favourite research technique. Ever!", said no Scientist I've come across in my 4 years in the field. __ I'm refering to the old, archaic & thrifty lab's Western Blot, where you make everything from scratch. _ Western blot is a very powerful technique to have in your toolbox. __ The function of Western Blot is to quantify the amount of your protein of interest in a given sample. __ While this won't tell you the function or quality of the protein or the rate at which the polymerase translates the mRNA in the tissue, it'll tell you the amount of protein in your tissue of interest relative to control. Which is usually the first step to deciding whether to pursue the protein's function. __ No one likes this technique because of the numerous steps and the number of ways things could go wrong. __ Although, it's no one's favourite technique, almost every wet lab uses it in one form or the other. Therefore, learning the technique may be worth your time. __ _ Is Western blot your favourite? What do you like about it? . If not, what's your favourite research technique? ⬇ _ . . . . . . . . . . .

Shoutout to our C.K. McClatchy girls, who are continuing to rock their #mentoring sessions this semester! • • • #girlsrockfinance#rtsws#rockthestreetwallstreet#genderequality#femaleempowerment#womenempowerment#financialliteracy#finance#education#financialindependence#womeninbusiness#womeninfinance#womeninstem#ca#california#mentor#mentoring#mentorship
⭐️ First Generation Student Series (post by the amazing @lisamichelleplans) ⭐️ • My dad made it through one semester of college, and my mom did two years before dropping out to marry my dad. So while I am first generation, I recognize I had a leg up that a lot of others didn't. My mom had actually done some college work and could help me navigate some of the waters. • But they knew nothing about financial aid, and I had to learn all that information myself. I apparently didn't learn it well, as I have massive student loans that I will have to start paying on after I graduate (hopefully next year). • While I had some help with undergrad from my parents, they knew nothing about graduate work, and I have had to learn all that on my own. • I've been blessed (cursed?) with a stubborn attitude, a hard-headed determination, and a mouth that sometimes says what it shouldn't. But it also helped me not to give up, and to learn to ask for help. That's the biggest and hardest lesson to learn, especially for someone like me who thinks I can figure it out on my own, but if you can find someone you trust and can be a mentor to you, someone that's been there, then that will go a long way. Ask for help. Help with a class. Help with an academic process you don't understand. Help processing your emotions. ASK FOR HELP. • Today I had a rough experience concerning my preliminary exams. It was so bad I told my husband that I felt stupid, and that's the first time in a long time I've felt that way. But I asked for help, I got feedback that while it hurt to hear, it gave me what I needed to move forward. • There are so many resources now for first-generation students that didn't exist 15 years ago when I was in college. Seek them out. Use them. And if you can connect with another first gen student and work together, that support system will stay with you for a lifetime. I have those friends now, and I know no matter where I go, they are going to be there for me, because our mutual bond and support are going to see us through anything.
It’s such a cool experience going back to school when you actually want to be there! I love school, I love learning and pushing myself! This semester is a bit lighter than normal while I’m finding the balance between working, school and home life but i’m still excited to be there!
Throwback to when I was sipping a lemonade from Chick fil A while trying different icecream flavors. ⠀⠀ . . The past three days have been so exhausting and today was the worst day I have had in a very long time. I literally just want to sit on my floor and cry. But I know that God has got me, and I also know that spending 2 hours laying on the floor crying is 2 hours I could have been studying for my MCAT. ⠀⠀ . . I say all of this to say, that life is complicated. Life will throw hurdles at you. We are all dealt a different set of cards playing this game, and you have to choose how you’re going to play your hand with the cards you were dealt. ⠀⠀ . . So, I have decided to get up. Get a coffee, study, and reminisce of happier times when life wasn’t throwing curveballs at 100mph, knowing that I have no hand eye coordination 😂😂😂 ⠀⠀ . . I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!! ❤️❤️❤️ ⠀⠀ • • • • • • • #premed#premedlife#studentlife#college#medschool#medicalschool#medschoolbound#chemistry#kaplan#kaplantestprep#mcatstudy#mcat#biology#womeninSTEM#blackdoctors#futuredoctor#roadtomd#journeytomedicine#womeninmedicine#melanindoc#studyblr#studying#womeninhealthcare#futuremd#doctortobe#gradstudent#naturalhair#studentlifestyle#fashionista#blackgirlmagic via @preview.app
I’m excited to read our way through the Girls in STEM Book List by @allienoflashcards! We have previously read a couple of these titles, like Ada Twist, Scientist and The Most Magnificent Thing, but most are new to us. I feel it’s important for my boys to read books about girls and women, both fictional and historical. (Plus I appreciate learning more about great women of past and present.) My kids love STEM subjects, and these books should help inspire some good conversations about a few of the many great women scientists, inventors, and thinkers as well as the qualities anyone needs to succeed in STEM careers or hobbies. #womenshistorymonthreads#womeninstem#womeninstembooks#girlsinstembooklist#stembooks#stembooksforkids#childrensliterature#notimeforflashcards
massive tl;dr in 🇬🇧🇺🇸 I've been thinking about my future a lot lately. I was asking myself the same questions all the time, waiting for someone who answers it instead of me. What should I do after I finish high school? What am I going to study? How do I manage to save the world? Where should I go where my skills and talents will be appericiated? Where am I going to be needed and accepted? I always knew I wanted to help others - even in an odd and twisted way. I wanted to study a lot of things - art, psychology, veterinary medicine, human medicine, engineering and finaly, science. My childhood dream was to become Albert Einstein! I wanted (and I still do want) to make the world better, but who doesn't? The urge for creating and growing through learning are lying deep inside of our evolutionary code and I want to explore these hidden depths of my mind and what it is capable of. I already feel that I started this journey, but these were only the first few steps that I made and I'm nowhere around my set goals. I honestly do look forward to what's coming with big hopes and even bigger dreams and may my participacion in #1000girls1000futures answer some of my yet unanswerable questions, show me new perspectives and ideas and fulfill my constant need to create and explore. I am deeply honoured! Thank you @NYASciences ♥️ #1000girls#STEM#futureofSTEM#womeninSTEM#science (Pictures included: //I really wanted to add photos that are connected to my "STEM-life" and have somehow a meaning for me so here they are 1. the building of my soon-to-be university, shot on the Researchers' Night in Hungary 2018 2. The first ever time I got to use an automatic pipette (absolutely magical if you try it first!) 3. The first chemistry research lab I got to get a sneak peek into (EKOL) 4. Me and my lab coat hanging out ♥️ I sometimes wear it because why not and it gives me the happy)

PRESENTING...👐🏼 . Today I spent the morning presenting my lay poster for doctoral college week. The idea was to try and explain your research (which is almost always super specific!!) to an audience who know absolutely nothing about the subject. . Obviously this can be tricky as as researchers we are usually so focussed in on what we do that we forget how much (or how little) others know or understand. . I really enjoyed the whole process- from making the poster (it was not supposed to be quite so pink however 😂) to explaining it to the judges who came round. I think having been doing #scicomm on here for a while definitely helped me to be confident in my abilities to explain things clearly and in a fun and engaging way (hopefully!!). . So here’s my 5 tips for successful communication of your research to non-specialists: 1️⃣ Be excited about your research! This sounds obvious, but if you’re not excited about it, they certainly won’t be 2️⃣ Use metaphors and similes. For example, I explain cell invasion through the ECM to be like eating through thick candyfloss (who now really wants candyfloss?!) 3️⃣ Pictures are great. S**t loads of words are not 4️⃣ Try and relate your research to real life applications- for example my research will not in my PhD lead to a cancer cure, but I can say by looking at what I do that a potential target could be discovered 5️⃣ Do not talk down to your subject - “did you understand that?” BAD “did that answer your question” GOOD. . Hope you all had a bangin’ Monday 😘 [PS. Apologies, this is a repost!]
Starting off the week with so much science communication enthusiasm after the @wise_cu SciComm Symposium. • • • A special shoutout to our outstanding keynote speakers, @webmz_ and @scicommnerd! These women truly transformed my PhD experience, so seeing them speak was a dream. Their articles have taught me to never settle into the narrative and empowered me to continue being a #womeninscience without jeopardizing my authentic self. • • • Being an engineer, a woman and a latina didn’t quite match in my head, so I used to compartmentalize my identities. Through the work of science communicators like the ones mentioned above, as well as @science.sam and @hownottotravellikeabasicbitch , I’ve learned that all of my identities work synergistically to help me innovate in every aspect of my life. • • • But, I wouldn’t have even heard of the term “SciComm” if it wasn’t for my @wise_cu fam. Thank you to the incredible team of women that made this event a reality: @firstname.lastname@example.org@jgaebe@adriennekatiana@katelyn_1992 • • • Doing a PhD can be difficult and isolating, but it is made easier when you have a community supporting you. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a physical community or digital through social media. For me, that community has been composed of friends, family, @cu_wise, @latinolabs, @cucafeseminar and a plethora science communicators that have no idea who I am. • • • I am grateful for my community and the spaces where my curiosity about natural phenomena, my very real PhD struggles, my love for #reggaeton and my #fashionista alter-ego can coincide.
THIS IS THE CURE FOR IMPOSTER SYNDROME, HOMIE👇 💜 I just got back from an event with some fucking incredible + powerful humans and for a hot minute it crossed my mind that maybe I should wear a full face of make-up to look more “legit” and less “like a derp.” Or that maybe I should wear a bra when I didn’t want to. 〰️ But guess what - I don’t compromise my self expression. 〰️ I showed up braless + bare-faced because that’s who I am when no one’s looking. . . >>And because being 100% yourself IS being legit AF.<< . . The belief that we have to mold into a version that other people won’t judge is sneaky. . 👉it shows up as speaking in a more monotone, less enthusiastic voice for fear that you’ll be seen as too feminine or excitable (aka "not worthy of getting taken seriously") . 👉it shows up as wanting to wear all black errday for fear that your red boots will be “too much” and you just “feel more comfortable” in all black anyway… 〰️ But here’s some real talk - Who do you want to continue to be for the rest of your life? . Yourself? Or someone else’s idea of who you ought to be? . 🔥Because being yourself will never “feel more comfortable” - it challenges you to be your best self all. the. time.🔥 . 👉👉AND being yourself feels fucking amazing and worth every single challenge. . Because being yourself in all areas of life means being celebrated for who you are wven when no one's looking . >>THIS IS THE CURE TO IMPOSTER SYNDROME<< 👇 Being able to show up to your own life being 100% YOU in work, relationships, play, all of it. 💜 Taking off the mask you wear to work so that you're "taken seriously" 💜 Imposter syndrome has nothing to do with your work environment and everything to do with how you show up to it. [loving truth bomb] 💣 So… if there's a part of you that's tired of wearing that mask, DM me and let's craft a strategy to help you take it off 💜

Dr. Yamuna Krishnan, professor of chemistry at the University of Chicago spent 8 years leading a team of fellow chemists in designing DNA nanodevices. These nanomachines can be inserted into the body without damaging any tissue and can aid in making new discoveries regarding health and medicine including molecular mechanisms and treatment of diseases, how we recieve medications, and our understanding of cell biology. Dr. Krishnan said, “By measuring chemicals that we could never see earlier, inside parts of the cell that we could never access earlier, we can get a whole new view of cell physiology and disease that would teach us about the basic aspects of how diseases develop.” The lab hopes that the technology will be ready to use worldwide in the near future. _ Dr. Krishnan was the youngest person awarded the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for Science and Technology in 2013 and in 2017, she won the Infosys @infosys Prize in the Physical Sciences for her work on DNA. The Infosys award is India’s equivalent to the Nobel Prize. She is the only woman to win the award in this category. _ What do you hope this development could mean for the future of medicine?

“In the Makassarese culture coral islands are viewed as liminal and amphibious entities. They are not terrestrial or aquatic…they are something in between landscape and seascape. The people who reside in these spaces are also seen as those who constantly engage with the liminal world. As a fishing community, they ebb and flow between land and sea.” Reflections on living in the liminal and posted to the blog... check it out! https://www.thestateofdrift.com/blog/living-in-the-liminal #theoceanisfemale#stateofdrift#marineconservation#indonesia#phdlife#womeninstem#waterwoman
