In that last 7 days, 3 of my friends successfully defended their PhDs! Coincidentally, I know all three of them through my involvement in science outreach, meaning that not only are they brilliant in their respective fields of study1, but they are also super awesome people who volunteer their time to bring the fun of science to kids!
Congrats Drs. Lauren, Mike & Rachel – you guys rock!
Now I’m off to the beach to celebrate with Dr. Rachel!
