So many people are asking me what I wanna do after I graduate. I think one of the reasonable ways to find out is by reading biographies of established women in STEM and connecting them to my own personal interests. Noor Tagouri said, “Combine your skill set with the causes that pain you. You can combine what is logical with issues you care about working in. Finding an aspect of service in whatever you do is how I’ve been able to find purpose in everything I work on.”
By reading biographies, I’m not trying to imitate other women’s success, I’m just trying to find the reference so I can continue fighting for whatever it is that’s worth fighting for. I have to admit that it is hard. It’s even harder sticking to the plan. But I decided that I won’t run away anymore. I’m letting myself make room for growth.
