I don’t think many people know much about STEM career paths or their challenges. I appreciate you making this podcast to give a personal look into this particular field. It has broadened the scope of my knowledge I have on the matter. Keep recording. The stories of these people will help to inspire others.
A must listen for ALL interested in or connect to STEM in any way
This podcast is awesome. I’ve been impressed by the journeys of those that have been interviewed. So inspiring. Since I’m not exposed to many people with STEM careers in my daily life, this podcast has given me a small window into the world of those who have made this their world. I’m better for listening and know you will be as well. Happy listening!
Thanks for being so candid. I enjoyed hearing about the emotional aspect of your journey to find fulfillment on the unique path you desired for your life. It’s true that our emotions play a vital role in all aspects of our human experience. They they can weigh pretty heavily on us when seeking the right direction to take in life.
