I am gay/queer and I am a third year medical student and research assistant.//
My whole life I’ve known that STEM and scientific thinking are where my interests lie, sadly like many other girls I felt discouraged when I was younger and only realized my passion later on, after high school. Nevertheless, after a transition into STEM, I am now heading towards becoming a future doctor and scientist!
My “coming out” is still in process for me. It has not been easy but it is truly liberating. I am no longer afraid to say that I am attracted to women.
I am very passionate about furthering students, women and queer people in research and STEM. Right now I am doing this through our student organisation Students in Research @sifgbg and in the non-profit organisation Girls in STEM @girlsinstem.se as well as every other opportunity that appears!
