“My work on @oitnb has taught me this: Human beings are not categorically bad because of their mistakes. They can learn from their errors and get back on track. No one should be forever written off because of one part of his or her history.” Happy birthday to one of our favorites, @dianeguerrero_!

Happy #PhDenomenalPhDemale Friday! Today continues the story from July's PhDenomenalPhDemale, Amber👩‍🔬, a 3rd year PhD student in California & #instascience blogger. As a astronomy student ✨, Amber has first hand experienced the unfair biases that women face in a male dominated field, because of that she is passionate about talking about the experience in an effort to encourage females to pursue science despite this. [3/4]⠀
.⠀
As a biochemist myself, I didn’t take math or physics beyond first year, so I ask Amber about the gender balance in those traditionally male dominated courses : “math and physics do attract a lot of dudes. In the introductory classes it can be more balanced (M:F) but as the courses advance, I sometimes had to get used to being the only female in the room. However, I was prepared for this situation as I had a role model in my mom, who also works in a male dominated field, ultimately, it was a positive experience for me”⠀
.⠀
“However that’s not the case for all – I’m lucky I had allies. Some women go through imposter syndrome and feel that they don’t have what it takes, after all 90% of the scientists in textbooks we read about are male scientists. This can have an unfortunate consequence of competitiveness between the females that are in the field. Eventually as more and more females enter physics we will hopefully have this balance, but unfortunately, there is still a large stereotype that exists that physicists (and scientists) must be a set way”⠀
.⠀
Amber recalls the story of a senior scientist to her being confronted that she was hired ‘because she was a woman’, to which that scientist replied “I don’t care – I’m just as qualified as any man”. Taking that as a sort of mantra, Amber believes in championing onward and upward despite the unfair unconscious bias woman in science face. "Efforts like ‘unconscious bias’ training are now being put into place in many universities and institutions helping to confront and change these underlying issues. There are many qualified women in physics and we need them.”⠀👩‍🔬👩🏼‍🔬👩🏽‍🔬👩🏿

Have you faced a similar bias like this? Remember, pursue whatever you like no matter whatever anyone says!

This made me so happy ☺️❤

If I look pooped it's because I just got done boxing! Don't feel bad for me because even though I look like crap I'm giddy inside! Why? Because I'm sitting here making more money then most people that work very hard for a living. Yes, it confuses me sometimes too! Set your life up right, have several forms of income and invest before you buy that bag and shoes! Don't worry that will all come later. I promise life will get easier if you work hard now. If you don't know where to start always ask people that do! Im lucky to have had amazing mentors, especially my family. I just like to sit and think sometimes.... They say the quietest ones are the ones making the biggest moves.......... so I'll just shut back up. #thinkbigger #motivation #itsyourlife #positivethinking #selfmade #smartgirls #bossbabe #bosslady #saunatalk #sauna #fitness #workout

👉🏻 Advil pm
👉🏻 NyQuil
👉🏻 Prescription sleeping pills
👉🏻 Alcohol
👉🏻 Marijuana
If you or someone you know has trouble sleeping please contact me. I have found something all natural, non-gmo, and completely effective to help. #insomnia
