I am queer and I am anundergraduate biology and chemistry student.//

I’ve always been a big proponent of representation in fields to encourage underrepresented people to stick with things they love, but it wasn’t until I got to high school that I found LGBTQ+ folks in the sciences. Now, as a scientist who wants to teach, I hope that I can be that queer person for other young people who love STEM but haven’t seen themselves reflected in the standard “scientist” profile. I’m hoping to go to grad school for Chemistry and work in education, mentoring little queer chemists in the future!
