Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
It’s been tough for me to feel like I belong in Science. I have never been the smartest person in any class I’ve been in, and I’m clumsy and make a lot of mistakes. I used to think that Scientists had to be good at everything and that they’re all geniuses who never mess up. Even though as a Scientist I have met tons of people who are a lot like me and I know now that none of them are perfect, I still have a sneaking suspicion in the back of my mind that I’m not good enough to do what I do. I have had to learn to ignore that voice and get back to Science! It’s not always easy to do that, but I have made lots of Scientist friends who help me feel like I belong here. It makes it easier when we talk about it, because they all have voices like that too but I KNOW that my friends belong in Science.
