I am non-binary and I am a master’s student.//
I study leopard shark movement behavior in San Diego, CA at the University of San Diego. As an undergrad and now grad student at USD, I am so lucky that my department has been nothing but supportive to me in my academic and personal life. As a non-binary person of color, it’s hard to find people who look like me represented in my field. However, I hope that my determination to continue in academia will inspire young LGBTQ+ POC scientists to continue to pursue their STEM dreams!
