So, my fatphobia in science tweet blew up, and there's been so many loving and supportive responses to it. However, people have also shared their stories, and I have to say: I'm so sorry you went through what you did, but I'm honored you felt brave enough to share your story. The only thing I've ever wanted to do on here was help someone. I was a peer mentor in undergrad, and the idea of helping and inspiring people makes me warm inside. If I've inspired even one person to open up about anything they've experienced, then my tweets were a success.

As a Latina #WomanInScience, I'm proud of what I've done and the goals I've set for myself. However, there is one thing that's rarely talked about in academia: fatphobia. And this is especially evident in science. This isn't a pretty thread, and will make you uncomfortable. (1/n) So, let's start with a self profile. I'm ~5'4" tall, and am a pretty standard size US 26. I've never shared this info publicly, and to be honest I'm VERY scared of sharing it. I've been overweight since childhood - since around 2nd grade. Yes, I got bullied throughout K-12. (2/n)

So it's been a busy morning but it's #InternationalWomenInScienceDay. Hell yeah it is. I am beyond proud to be a proud Latina in science, and I am beyond lucky to have such an amazing support system here on Twitter. I've wanted to do weather related research since middle school. In honor of today, I'll make a list of women in science who amaze and inspire me every day. This list is by no means comprehensive and I know I won't get all of the amazing women I know on here.
