After a great science course in high school, I saw that, for me, science was the natural next step. It felt like a puzzle waiting to be solved. For me, being a woman in STEM is about being authentically myself while pursuing a field I enjoy. I do not separate my feminism from my work. It influences how I think and feel and interact with my peers. My whole identity, including being a woman in STEM, makes me the scientist, communicator, and colleague that I am.
