"GradFUTURES has helped me to explore a lot of opportunities that sharpen a wide range of skills beyond research. I also get to connect with inspiring people in the Council on Science and Technology, with whom I'm able to work on personalized projects that bring about real change.
I believe that science is not just about labs and papers in academia, it's about sharing the beauty of nature with everyone and making sure our technology is used responsibly. Therefore, I'm really interested in science communications alongside my academic career.
As part of my work at the Council on Science and Technology, I co-create Voices of STEM. Check out the series here!"
