The newly formed undergraduate EMS student group held a faculty panel discussion on October 29. Victoria Sanchez, Yvette Richardson, Melissa Gervais, Kate Freeman and I were asked to provide “a piece of advice on being a woman in science.”
We learned many on the panel enjoyed science and math in high school; they found themselves naturally pursuing more of these kinds of courses when they enrolled in college. Melissa recalled that a particular physics teacher was instrumental in her career path, and Kate made us all laugh when she told us about the role of tarot cards in her early decision-making.
Overall the evening went by fast because of the animated discussion generated by the insightful questions of the audience. Thanks for inviting me to be part of the kick-off event for this new club.
