Oh the energy you waste holding on to fear. Tonight I jumped over one of my fears; posting a video on social media 🤷‍♀️😂. Opening up online doesn’t come naturally for me and the sound of my voice on my voicemail geeks me out. I had been putting off posting a video because it totally freaked me out, but tonight I did just that. Instead of feeling like going to sleep or watching a movie, jumping over my fear filled me with the burst of energy I needed after a tiring day at work.⠀ .⠀ Now I have the energy I need to bust out an hour of work to get ready for our challenge group starting Monday! Jump over your fear and join me!

I’d also add Take it to God. . . When I first got my MBA offer, I was legit scared to take that leap. I mean first off Greece (not any of the popular destinations like US or Canada or UK). Second, I suddenly felt so inadequate. I started feeling like I wasn’t ready or old enough or experienced enough, I mean all sorts of excuses. Anyhoo, I took it to God, had inner peace, and zoomed off (I didn’t even give enough notice to my goons at work for a send-forth but my people came through) N.B: Was mostly at a client site for 2 years, so I was somewhat plugged out from the office. . . . What about starting CAWSTEM. Total leap of faith, I didn’t have all the plans or funds or experience(still don’t have all the answers, taking it one day at a time). But for the life of me, I couldn’t shake if off and on some nights it was all I thought about. Prayed about this too and started with what I had. . . And now, with what’s ahead even though I’m unsure, I’m still going to try nonetheless. . Don’t let fear hold you back. If it scares you, it might be a good time to try. Take that leap of faith - make that call, take that course, build that network, try out that idea 💡 . . #MyThursdayThought . Also you should be following @cawstem if you’re a #womaninstem
Are you a #womaninSTEM ? Have you ever experienced gender bias? I know for me, people always assumed I was a masters student in graduate school, but always assumed PhD for my male counterparts. Check out this post by #sheMD and paper by Banchefsky et al. for an interesting look on perceptions in science #Repost @shemdgram with @get_repost ・・・ Let's talk about looking like a woman! 🙋 An article was published in 2016, titled "But You Don’t Look Like A Scientist!: Women Scientists with Feminine Appearance are Deemed Less Likely to be Scientists." Many of us already inherently know this to be true from our experiences. In medicine, young female physicians are assumed to be nurses. Why is that? 🤷 This research concluded that a feminine appearance affected career judgments for female scientists but had no effect on judgments of male scientists. They found increasing femininity decreased the perceived likelihood of that female being a scientist and increasing the perceived likelihood that the female was an early childhood educator. Past research has suggested that femininity and attractiveness are viewed as INCOMPATIBLE with science! 🤦🏾‍♀️ So for #womeninstem , feminine appearance may erroneously signal that they are not well suited for science. Role incongruity theory tells us that if a person does not “fit” within a career because of a mismatch between that person’s gender role and the career role, then they may experience more prejudice. According to the article, "a woman who is more feminine in appearance than other women will elicit stronger perceived role incongruity and will therefore experience more prejudice than their less feminine counterparts." 🙅 Should we try not to look feminine? NO! Be you. Look the way you want to look. As a wise friend (my sister) always says, "YOU DO YOU GIRLFRIEND!" 👩🏽🔬 We just need to know that this gender bias exists. And that we will encounter it and have to defy it during our careers!

#Repost @lenora.porter ・・・ Should you learn how to code as a UX | UI | Product Designer? [Includes 12 great places online to get started] . I would encourage everyone to learn every tool to help them become a bad ass. One thing I can’t stand is working with a designer who doesn’t understand code. It’s like they approach design in such a naive way 🤦🏽‍♀️. They don’t think in terms of states, components, micro-interactions, animation, page transitions, device limitations, software limitations, etc. Of course, I think you can learn those things without knowing how to code! There are plenty designers who are diligent when it comes to staying up to date with trends, software releases, and the new new. However, there are many who don’t think it’s in their best interest to learn anything related to coding. For me, I ask the developers I’m working with, “What language are you doing that in?” When I’m told, I try to do a project in that language. Currently, I’m working with React developers. I found a Udemy course to build an Instagram and YouTube replica and went in! I learned what words to use to speak to them about certain changes we needed to make, I spoke to them in terms of shared components, I spoke in terms of state, load times, etc. The conversation was seamless and it flowed because we actually followed each other. We even pair program on the weekends so I can learn more about the language. This helps us build a bond as coworkers and helps us understand each other to the point where building an application is a breeze! Again, learn what you want but it won’t hurt to learn the basics of coding. . 12 great places to get started with code: . 1. @teamtreehouse 2. @codecademy 3. @frontendmasters 4.

#giveaway to celebrate reaching 1000 followers. Thank you so much to everyone who is supporting me. To enter follow me here and tag two people who you admire. For the give away I’ve picked two items which reflect what my account is about and who I am. The first is a book called ‘a lab of one’s own’ by Patrica Fara. I am a #feminist and a self proclaimed #nastywoman . This book recognises the work of fierce female scientists during the war. I’ve also added a neutral eye shadow palette from #revolution . It’s a great starter palette and the quality of the pigmentation is excellent especially the mattes.

WHY YOU SHOULD START BY LEARNING HTML⠀ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -⠀ When getting into programming the first question people ask themselves is what they should learn to get started. Since there are so many different options people feel often overwhelmed. Its always good to have a choice but when there are too many options it becomes a burden. ⠀ Hearing the following phrases does not help:⠀ ⠀ "In the end it doesn't matter, since they are basically all the same. If you know one, you know them all."⠀ ⠀ Or:⠀ ⠀ "What you only learn HTML? Thats not even a programming language."⠀ ⠀ Especially the last one makes me really angry. If you want to learn something new like cooking or getting into fitness and health or programming, it's always dangerous to get stuck into details. Don't get overwelmed by all the possibilities. Just start however you want to start and if people are telling you that you can‘t be taken seriously since you only know HTML let them talk. ⠀ ⠀ I think starting with HTML is actually a good thing. It's quite easy, you see the results immediatly and it‘s especially for total newcomers more practical than writing algorithms. ⠀ ⠀ After learning HTML for some time, you may start using CSS to style your pages. Someday you may think "Hey I dont want to hardcode everything on my site!". Thats when you'll get into databases. After you have learnt someting about databases you'll need to connect your database to your pages. In order to do so you'll need functions to retrieve or even store the data. Thats when you might get into Java. ⠀ ⠀ What I want to potray here is that you will learn the things you need to learn when you actually need to learn them (rocketsciene I know). If you worry about Front-End, Back-End and Databases at the very beginning all at once, you'll get frustrated and maybe you will never actually start. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #coder #motivation #programming #html #htmlisnotaprogramminglanguage #coding #codergirl #womanintech #getstarted #womaninstem #frontend #backend #softwaredevelopment #development #webdevelopment #programmerrepublic #learning

Hi guys, missed me? Oh, I had a tough week handling our big data. Have you ever dealt with necessity to quickly store huge amounts of data, that has a several unique criteria and somehow all this criteria should be compound to represent your primary key unique value?Most databases have such feature as a complex primary key, which is just the best fit for my data. But actually inserting new records in such a table have several issues, you guys should keep in mind. First, make all this unique attributes, your primary key is compound with indexing. Second, whole inserting and checking whether your table already has this record or not would be slow, especially when you need to insert thousand of new records per minute. This would take really long time. Usually, complex primary keys are used with combination of some numeric or datetime, timestamp values and some string values. So what I recommend you to do is, before inserting new data, make some delay in your code, collect the array of data you've received during this period, get the biggest numerical/datetime value with the given other unique values from your database, sort your collected data, by removing all elements that have lower/smaller numerical/datetime values than the highest you've pulled from database. After proceed an atomic operation with insert many command. This would perform a very much faster insertion into your database, you wouldn't probably see the difference on a small data flow, but with big data the difference will be huuuuge🤓☝🔥

#Repost @helenthechemist (@get_repost ) ・・・ Here's another #ThursdaysTheory . Today it's more about the pigments/dyes used in cosmetics. Pigments/dyes are coloured because electrons in the molecules absorb a wavelength of light that we can see with our eyes. If they absorb blue light they appear orange (see colour wheel). There are two main ways to make molecules absorb a colour of light we can see. The pigments/dyes are either: Organic and Inorganic. Organic pigments are mainly composed of carbon. Their structures have benzene rings derivatives in which the important electrons sit in delocalized pi-orbitals. Inorganic pigments on the other hand have metal centers and the important electrons sit the d-orbitals of the metals.

💥FAN of the TRYPTOPHAN-THE GUT BRAIN AXIS 💥 Tryptophan (TRP) an essential amino acid only obtained from food is a precursor in multiple biological pathways. One well studied is TRP conversion to serotonin, which is well known for mood and memory making effects. 1% however is made in the brain, 90% is made in the gut.[1]🥦 •Our microbiota is a first-line immunological barrier of “friendly bacteria”. Gut colonisation begins at birth with environmental and genetic factors determining it too. Diet/medicine/stress can modify microbiota composition, it’s metabolic activity and may correlate with physical and mental disease.[2] •Microbiota enzymes convert TRP into multiple metabolic byproducts. Remaining TRP is used by gut neuro-endocrine cells to produce serotonin that controls gut enteric nervous system, gut immunity and protects gut endothelium from leakiness and inflammation amongst other roles. In animal studies testing forced microbiota depletion, circulating TRP and serotonin levels rose in association with neuro-developmental and behavioural changes.[1] • In our brain🧠, serotonin neurones project to the amygdala affecting emotional regulation & hippocampus for memory. The pineal gland too uses serotonin converting it to melatonin for circadian rhythm. If serotonin levels are low, sleep, factual recall and performance of high-function tasks can become impaired. [1] A meta-analysis comparing TRP depletion diet studies observed a reduction in memorisation of verbal commands.[3] Studies testing TRP depletion diets in people with active, past or familial depression experienced greater mood disturbances than people without mental health history. Whilst environmental/genetic factors can not be excluded, the absence of TRP at microbiota and gut cell level may have an adaptive effect on gut-serotonin feedback to the brain.[4] •Unravelling the serotonin pathways behind the gut-brain axis suggests how microbiota disruption from diet, stress can impact gut function, mood, cognitive function & sleep. As understanding of the multi-factorial aspects of health preservation grows; we can not ignore the first link in the chain -feeding the gut microbiota. 📷: Eating kimchi

My advice to those starting university is to not spend all of their time studying. I promise you, almost everyone in your class will graduate with a 2:1 or a 1st but the question is who will have that unique selling point (USP) _ During both my undergraduate and postgraduate degree I made sure I was very much involved in extra curricular activities from STEM work to arts to taking summer internships. Singing was definitely my best stress releaser during my #phd . Performing in front of 100s and 1000s was also a great way to hone my presentation skills but most importantly to meet really great people who were not only excelling in education but that had more about themselves than just a degree. I was inspired. _ Don’t make your university experience just about studying. Meet new people, try different things, travel and make friends for life. These should be the best years of your life where you also get to discover so much about yourself. People always tell you to work hard but I say work smart! You come out of your A-levels thinking that it’s all about the grades, don’t let the system fool you. Grades are important but they need to be accompanied by other skills. Grades will only give you a 9-5 but people who want to do more in life know that’s not enough _ My university experience was a great learning curve. I have tried different things, I have grown as a person, I have made great friends, I have cried and learnt to stand up for myself even against people above me. I don’t have regrets neither should you! _ Side note during a recent interview I was asked what else I did other than my PhD. I said that I was a jazz/indie singer even though I also enjoyed singing classic rock and the person interviewing me excitingly said that his son was studying jazz even though he preferred classic rock, I promise you after that the interview went so well! That may not be the main reason that got me to the last stage but it made me relatable and it broke down the ice ❄️❄️❄️ Employers want to work with people they get on with well! :) Xx #phdgirl #phdadvice #phdtip #jazzsinger #girlmusician #indiesongwriter #uclalumni

Today I’m in the lab and I’m testing the valve which will make my molecular beam of methane. The valve is opened and closed by a piezo Crystal. When a negative voltage is applied the piezo contracts opening the valve and when the voltage is removed it relaxes and closes the valve. In the video above you can see helium bubbling through the methanol I’ve put on top of the valve opening and hear the valve opening and closing 200 times a second. Piezos incredibly useful for electrically controlling fine movement. Does anyone else use piezos or know any other applications of them. 👇👇👇 #featurethechemistry #spectroscopy #heriotwatt #postdoc #postdoclife #phdstudentsofinstagram #womenwhoscience #womeninstem #chemistry #helenthechemist #scicomm #instascience #sciencenerd #physicalchemistry #stem #womaninstem #instascience #ilovechemistry #research #lovescience #discoverunder5k #pchem #discoverunder1k #labbench #indalab #scientistswhoselfie

I got asked at multiple occasions how a total newbie should start when it comes to learn how to code. When? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I started at the age of 20 as a total newbie myself and I have still a long way to go. The thought that many coders start at a young age really worried me. I felt like a granny that was taking her first ballet class. Today I know that this is nonesense. If you are willing to learn and cope with A LOT of frustration you can start whenever you want to. How? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I started to learn Java by attending an on demand Udemy course. In this Plattform there are many high quality courses which cost not much. I would suggest everyone to do the same. Nowadays I use Pluralsight which has a different subscription model but is essentially the same. I suggest to check them both out! Lastly everyone has different ways of learning. All I always write notes and cheatsheets. Some people may find this useless and thats okay too. #learn #code #learnhowtocode #code #coding #programmer #programming #coder #ProgrammerRepublic #motivation #womaninstem #womanintech #gettingstarted
Weekend chill with a new book 🌞📖 Last week I went to Prof. Ben Goldacre's talk in London (it was awesome!) who's life mission is to make science better. One of his many goal is to end pseudoscience and the billion dollar business around by explainining good and bad science to every day people. This book made me break my rule about not starting a new book while I haven't finished the other.🙈 It's full of sarcasm and shows you how scientists think. Read this book, and please stop supporting pseudoscience.

Know your worth. No I mean it, really know what you are worth. Whether that is at work, in a relationship or elsewhere _ I don't want to 'pretend' to be someone I am not, I don't want people being condescending towards me because I am a woman (it happened many times) and I don't want people deciding whether I can do something or not just by looking at me _ Sometime ago I applied for a job and it was a really good one. I got to the last stage of the interview and I was asked whether I was happy with what I was being payed. For the first time in my life I said NO because I know what I am worth. Then one of the interviewers told me that the role was about gaining the experience and I thought I have done my fair share of learning and I know what I am capable of and if you can't see it somebody else will. From then onwards I became more vocal about these things, I don't shy away from it anymore and I was offered more positions. Many women do that or are forced to settle because of the way society perceives us. Well guess what, until I get the job I want I am not settling _ Why am I writing this? Because I want to look back at it and tell myself that I didn't give up and that having faith in myself is what got me to where I will be inshaAllah _ Being a muslimah I have faith and in the same way that I had faith when I embarked on my #PhD or when I opened my art business or when I did a year abroad, I will do the same now ... well let's see how things go #phdgirl #phdchat #womanatwork #womaninstem @womenforwomen #womanentrepreneur
It’s not often I get to pick up a bit of my experiment and fling it over my shoulder but today I removed the test chamber I’d been using. I’ve replaced it with a bigger beefier chamber swipe to see it 👉👉👉. In this new chamber I’m going to create a molecular beam of methane and measure its intensity with my laser set up. The aim of the game is two-fold. 1) I’ll be able to see how sensitive my laser set up is and 2) I’ll be able to see if this new valve (which makes the molecular beam) is better than the one we are currently using in the main experiment. Hopefully this all works!!!! What is everyone else working on at the moment? 👇👇👇 #featurethechemistry #spectroscopy #heriotwatt #postdoc #postdoclife #phdstudentsofinstagram #womenwhoscience #womeninstem #chemistry #helenthechemist #scicomm #instascience #sciencenerd #physicalchemistry #stem #womaninstem #instascience #ilovechemistry #research #lovescience #discoverunder5k #pchem #discoverunder1k #labbench #indalab #scientistswhoselfie
So...🔬 Clearly my cells didn't like what I tried to put in them and they decided to just die....😒🔫 On the bright side, I don't have to come to the lab over the weekend 🤗 "Always look at the bright side of life..."

„ A preamble is a concoction of words and nonwords used before getting to the main point. The more words you use, the more diffused your message becomes and the less likely the listener will hear your unique Message.“ Cant count the times I have done this in the past...😒🤔 #nicegirlsdontgetthecorneroffice #nicegirlsstilldontgetthecorneroffice #nicegirl #motivation #selfconfidence #selfperception #empowerment #womaninbusiness #womaninstem #bookstagram
It's gonna be one of those Fridays, too early to work, too much to do...but office all to myself and my faithful kitty cup by my side 😸 #sciencefriday #womaninstem #writing #sciencesummer
I'm gonna be studying for placement tests in October for college! This will be my second college attempt, last time I did game design online and it ruined my hands to the point where I had to stop. This time I'm a little older and a little wiser, and I'll be studying science. So I'll be a woman in STEM, how about that? I'm feeling confident! #wishmeluck #somerambling #womaninstem #iwannabecoolformybaby #college #collegestuff #selfie #kimono #evangelines #longhair #glasses #pale #altgirl #alternativegirl
I love doing Science. This was my first time mentoring a student. It was quite challenging, but waooo we learned, laugh, cried and we celebrate at the end the experiments that worked out. Thanks to my #labbuddie @evesanz_09 for being the best friend and support ever. To my student, @girishsenthil I'm very proud of you and I hope you learned the basis of scientific research during this summer. Also, my mentor, Dr. Carlos Casiano for guiding my experiments and clarifying my doubts. Closer to my proposal...🙌🏼👩🏻‍🔬 •••• #womaninstem #prostatecancerresearch #prostatecancerawareness #cancerresearch #phdlife
This is an interesting species studied and identified by me 8 years ago, when I first visited the UFMT campus Sinop. At that time I thought it was a Fissiphalliidae species. Then we started to describe it, me and @regi.saturnino , but when Regi finally made drawings of the genitalia I saw it wasn’t this family. We had problems with the last author who lost all the samples. But now I sampled hundreds of this species and was able to confirm and back at describing our new Escadabiidae species. . Esta é uma espécie interessante. Eu a estudei e identifiquei há 8 anos atrás, como uma nova espécie de Fissiphallidae, quando eu visitei o campus da UFMT Sinop pela primeira vez. Então nós começamos a descrever a nova espécie, quando notamos, após a @regi.saturnino fazer o desenho da genitália do macho, que não era Fissiphalliidae. Porém por problemas com nosso terceiro autor que perdeu todo material, não pudemos dar continuidade ao estudo. Mas recentemente coletei vários exemplares e pude confirmar que temos um Escadabiidae sp nova e vou terminar de descrevê-lo. 😍 . #harvestmen #opiliones #arachnida #aracnids #aracnideos #opilião #womeninscience #womeninstem #womaninscience #womaninstem #mulhernaciência #mulheresnaciência #wonderwoman #mulhermaravilha #garotasquefazemciência #girlsjustwannadoscience #ufmtsinop
Today, going #backtobasics with #quantum by watching the Oxford University Quantum Mechanics course on iTunes. I’ve definitely forgotten most of this! #physics #exam #gradlife #postgrad #phd #memorylikeasieve #stem #womaninstem

Good morning my beautiful enGIRLneers! Today’s post is a shout out to @sal_mariano_ for this morning’s podcast. ✨⚡️💫 . As a full time enGIRLneer, tight deadlines📆, unknown factors❓, and stressful situations❌ are inevitable. However, we, need to be well-equipped with the tools ⚙️🛠 to not let stress affect us on a deeper level. Therefore, we need to prime ourselves to create habits that will help our day to day life. . My habit today is to stand 💃 at work and try some breathing techniques 🌬💆‍♀️ throughout the day. ✨ . What habit are you creating today to help you be happier and less stressed?💕 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #engineer #womaninstem #engineers #stem #stemcareers #ilooklikeanengineer #engirlneer #engirlneers #womenengineer
YES! How many of us are guilty of this? I know I am, but I’ve been working on it. I’m proud to say I’m NOT sorry for other people’s actions. Barbie is challenging us. Let’s take it a step further and not say sorry for a whole week 😏 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #engineer #womaninstem #engineers #stem #stemcareers #ilooklikeanengineer #engirlneer #engirlneers #womenengineer

Because I’m almost 80% done with my Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering! 😭😬 . I will be wrapping up this semester in the next two weeks and then I will be enjoying my last summer vacation EVER! Fall 2018 is my last semester😈 Ya girl has been getting her hustle on and is ready to tap out 😭 This is my last school related milestone ✅ and then it’s FREEDOM for the rest of my life (I think) 😬 Anyways just wanted to share my very early happy news cause I seriously can’t wait until I am DONE! ✅ Goodnight y’all 👋😴 . . . . . #engirlneer . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #engineer #womaninstem #engineers #stem #stemcareers #ilooklikeanengineer #engirlneer #engirlneers #womenengineer
enGIRLneer secret: Use tools to make you a more successful YOU! . My life changers have been @trish_blackwell , @melaniemitro , & Kelly Watson! They have helped me with my confidence, happiness, mental health, and my profession. I listen to their podcasts on my way to work, school, etc. #theORANGEline was the book that started my journey. The 2 #healthandwellness planners have made it easier for me to implement their teachings into my daily life. THANK YOU 🙌👏 #enGIRLneer . . What has helped you with your confidence? Tell me!

Day ✌️ was even better than day ☝️. 🧡🍊💥 . My goals for today were to be happy and enjoy the moment (even if I was stressing tf out internally lol). As an engineer it’s easy to feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day, so I asked myself what truly makes me happy and wrote it down. My goals are to live and enjoy the moment even if I’m in the middle of a storm. So I’m practicing writing in my little #healthandwellness journal so I can remind myself to enjoy and appreciate every day! 🧡 . Today I had lunch with my team and it was so nice because although I’m in a time crunch, I was actually able to enjoy the moment. I got to know them a little more as people and not just as coworkers. Shoutout to them. They’re a great group of MALE engineers and I’m happy to be a part of the team! #maleengineersrocktoo 🧡💥🍊 . Also, I finally saw my college friend, Stacy (@stacytam ). She showed me around the manufacturing facility and shared her accomplishments w/ me. Her love and passion for manufacturing 👩‍🏭 was so inspirational. 💕 Thank you for setting the example for girl engineers and how we should express our love for engineering openly. Also, thank you for introducing me to other engineers (and #enGIRLneers ) across the facility. I appreciate ya 🧡🍊💥 . Ok I’m done for now. Gonna finish my studying, homework, and yoga before I go to bed. . Goodnight friends 🧡. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #engineer #womaninstem #engineers #stem #stemcareers #ilooklikeanengineer #engirlneer #engirlneers #womenengineer
Today was my first day at the the new job as a Project EnGIRLneer! 🧡💥🍊 . Yo girl was feeling fancyyyy walking around in my little $5 heels 👠😬😂 . It was actually a really good day. I was very productive; I did some yoga 🧘‍♀️ before work, learned a ton about my project 📚🚀 , met some new people, and studied for my midterm when I got home 📖. . Every time I start a new job, I walk in super excited thinking and hoping there will be tons of other women in engineering. My previous companies were no different. The reality is that there are very few women in the engineering community 😭. I walk in with the expectation that I’ll find potential girl friends I can connect with, laugh, etc, but unfortunately expectations doesn’t equal reality. The few of us that are in engineering are so so different. It’s not like sharing the same chromosomes ❌❌ automatically means we’ll become bffs (although that does happen sometimes). Shoutout to my friends. I love you girls and appreciate you 💕 (this goes for my enGIRLneer and non-enGIRLneer friends) . The STEM community (ahem, engineering) has a long ways to go. It is not where I’d like it to be, which is why I can’t help but notice how different life is as an enGIRLneer. . enGIRLneer is about embracing our individuality AND inner engineer. Part of ME being an #enGIRLneer is that I’m GIRLY and I love being girly. In real life I’m full of energy. My favorite color is purple💜. I like yoga. I like video games. I love engineering and technology. I like makeup. I love shopping at thrift stores. I love LEARNING about technology. I love seeing how far we’ve come. I love being able to work on challenging tasks. I love being able to see an engineering design come to life😬 . Anyways, this is ME. An ENGIRLNEER. Sitting here taking pictures of my outfit for my first day as a Project Engineer! 🧡💥🍊 . P.S. I found the best mirror for outfit sharing, so I will be posting my #OOTD more often. You’ve been warned. 😬 #scientistswhoselfie . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #engineer #womaninstem #engineers #stem #stemcareers #ilooklikeanengineer #engirlneer #engirlneers #womenengineer
Today I was a little bold with my lip color cause I wasn’t feeling it. It took me way too long to get out of bed this morning. Although I have a million things to do, I wasn’t motivated. So I got up, made myself some breakfast, walked my pups 🐶, got ready, wrote down my daily goals, and took myself to Starbucks to get some studying done! 💪🍊💥🧡 it also helps that I scheduled a meeting with my partner today for our project. #AccountabilityHelps . How did you motivate yourself today? . #engirlneer #engineer #ilooklikeanengineer #scientistswhoselfie . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #engineer #womaninstem #engineers #stem #stemcareers #ilooklikeanengineer #engirlneer #engirlneers #womenengineer
