Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
I would let students know to prepare to accept that pursuing a science career means you will have to accept that mistakes are part of the journey. However, mistakes do not mean that you are a failure or that you aren’t intelligent. Mistakes allow you to grow & are an essential part of becoming an amazing scientist. Lastly I would tell them to always reach out for help when they are feeling unsure, it is really easy to get into an imposter syndrome mindset, but find a mentor that you can reach out to when having doubts about your ability to pursue a science career. Overall, I would tell them how exciting science can be when you are super interested in your study system, so find a field of science that you love!
