The alien feeling of belonging

This is year 6 of blogging, Thanks wordpress for the nice reminder. I’m nowhere as consistent as I was with my writing and pushing content for women transforming science. It’s hard to make the time and write something meaningful. To say that this year has been challenging, it’s an understatement.
