Digital-free childhood: our playground was wide expanse of hills & mountns. Roamed freely & safely. Being close to nature ignited curiousity & wonder, igniting my love for #EarthSciences #Botany #Chemistry. 🍃🌿🍀🐜🕷️

Genetically I’m Indian - ancestors brought to ‘British Guiana’ from India during colonial times to work on #sugarplantations.

Culturally I’m #Caribbean as #Guyana shares historical and cultural ties with other Anglo-Caribbean countries.

Thank you @IWS_Network for this opportunity to share my story during the week in the Voice Without Frontiers program! #IWSvoices #WomenInSTEM
I was born in Medellin, Colombia as the oldest of three siblings. My family belonged to the low-middle class, so my parents always inculcated school and knowledge as the best opportunity to have a good and successful career and future. #IWSvoices #WomenInSTEM @IWS_Network Image
Since my earlier years I was disciplined, independent and curious and I always had a deep desire for new knowledge. That's why science, biology and philosophy were my favourite courses, and the reason why I would later become a scientist. #IWSvoices #WomenInSTEM @IWS_Network Image

I am from Colombia, the world's leading source of emeralds and its coffee is world-renown. I grew up with my parents and my brother. I am very close to them and with my brother we grew up playing golf and eating mangos from our backyard. #IWSvoices #WomenInSTEM A collage of 3 pics. Top le...
Growing up my parents were always involved and supportive in our education. My dad being an engineer and me being passionate for medicine was the perfect mix to create very cool projects explaining different body functions #IWSvoices #WomenInSTEM Pic of me with a lab coat i...

I was born in the 1980s, in the suburbs of Divinopolis, a small city in the Minas Gerais state, 🇧🇷 (right in the middle of the country, so, no beaches there). I’m the oldest of 4 children. I was a happy child who could play in the streets and climb trees.

I also watched a lot of 📺and this helped to develop my passion for science. One of my favourite shows was Beakman’s World. I wanted to be a scientist like him. But I had never met any scientist. I wasn’t even sure if this profession really existed in 🇧🇷.
#IWS #IWSvoices Image
My passion for biology started in high school, because of one very enthusiastic teacher. I’ll never forget my first lab class and she saying: “look at those mitochondria, how beautiful they are!” I decided that I’d be a biologist.

@IWS_Network @universitelaval @unil @UBC Thank you @IWS_Network for allowing me to share my story here. My name is Razan Sheta, of Palestinian/Jordanian origins. Born and raised in Riyadh Saudi Arabia. I have traveled the world, and I am really looking forward to sharing my story. #IWSvoices @IWS_Network. Image
@IWS_Network @universitelaval @unil @UBC I left home at a young age, and was super excited to start a new adventure in Canada @UBC . At that time, I thought this is going to be my biggest adventure. Little did I know it was just the beginning. #IWSvoices @IWS_Network.
@IWS_Network @universitelaval @unil @UBC My first experience in a lab was with the late world-renowned researcher, Dr. El-Husseini's. It was an overwhelming experience. But I owe everything to the back-then PhD student who took me under her wings

I am #grateful for the opportunity given by #IWS_Network to share my story, struggles and success in the voices without frontiers (VWF).
My name is Betelhem, most people call me Betty and I prefer it that way. I was born 27 years ago to a young couple in AddisAbeba, the capital of #Ethiopia. #IWSVoices 1/n Image
My mom and me rather look like sisters. Despite being a teenager when she got me, she sacrificed her whole life to raise me up. She made sure I had the best #education possible. I am forever grateful to my mom sis & do everything to make her and God #proud. #IWSVoices 2/n Image

It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Our #family was not wealthy, but my parents made sure I had good #education, even if that meant sacrificing part of their own life. For that I will be forever #grateful. They made sure I learned how to #appreciate everything I had that money could not buy.

I loved learning about #science in school. Not only because it is #fascinating, but also because my biology teacher, Diógenes (@spock_alvo), had great #enthusiasm when teaching it! His motivation would #inspire me to fall in 💜 with the 🧠! #teachinggoals

My first months in Canada were rocky to say the least. Had a lot of #depression episodes, felt like giving up & didn’t know where to turn for help or how to ask for help. In retrospect, It was a lack of professional & social support system. I wish I knew #IWS by then!
#IWSvoices
Months went by before I realized I should motivate myself & be grateful for the #chance I've been given! After a year, I returned back to "normal", my old, happy and motivated self. I was #thrilled to wear the toga on my graduation, no togas in #Dutch graduations! #IWSVoices Image
I was graduated now what? Visited many jobfairs and went to resume workshops. Still couldn't land a scientific job. Worked as customer service agent and inventory control asistant at Cirque du Soleil & David's Tea resp. The job quest continues. #IWSVoices #jobhunting #polyvalent Image
