Hello tiny dreamer!
Thank you so much for coming here to speak to me about your interest in science! I’m very flattered by your admiration and would like to also tell you that you are doing the right thing by deciding to stick with what you want to do. Please keep going with it! I have no doubts that you will succeed in the future. Even though your family might not support you, I think it’s still crucial for you to stay focused and go out there to get what you want. You have an interest in it, and that’s very important. You dictate your life. You get to choose. Please don’t even lose that hope.
And for me? What is it like to be a scientist?
It’s amazing. It really is absolute bliss to be very much involved in science. I fall in love with it more and more everyday. And the reason is because there’s so much freedom of thinking when it comes to science. Science follows a rigorous guide that strictly adheres to logical thinking, which allows scientists to get to the truth. And it is the time spent everyday trying to this truth that makes being a scientist one of the best thing about being alive. I like the idea that free-thinkers can express thoughts, ideas, theories, and various understanding of the human condition. But scientists are able to conceptualize those ideas into a larger, more formidable and graspable knowledge.
Truth is absolute beauty. And things are also absolute beauty. We, scientists, find ways to learn about both. It’s awesome, really.
