I hope I’m featured in “Comment Corner!”

Hello Greg and Mitch!

I’m a fellow Torontonian and Canadian, eh! 🇨🇦

I am also a big fan of you guys 😊 I have been watching the asapscience YouTube channel since I was in grade 9, when my science teacher showed my class your song, the periodic table of elements. Now I’m going into my third year of university studying kinesiology (exercise science). I love learning about how intricate the human body is from the cellular to the organ level and how the body moves. Asapscience has inspired me to go into a STEM field.

STEM helps us to learn and answer many of life’s questions such as solutions on how to end the COVID-19 pandemic. #StayHome #FlattenTheCurve #ThankYouEssentialWorkers 😁

Currently, there has become more diverse representations of people in STEM. You can be any race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. and proudly study STEM!

Your side note podcast has kept me “entertained and simultaneously learning” 😉 while I commuted to school before the pandemic occurred. I have been listening to side note since it started about 3 years ago. I also have and love your book 📖 ❤️

Keep being you and thank you for your contributions as science communicators!

Kind Regards, Alyssa ✌🏽

P.S. I’m sorry for writing a novel-length review and I will literally scream if I hear you guys read review in “Comment Corner” of the sidenote podcast 😱😁
