Science is an amazing field, full of the potential to made discoveries that can change the world! It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. One of the toughest things about being a scientist is learning how to handle failure and rejection. Experiments fail, things don't work, plants die, years of research goes down the tubes because the power goes out and the -80C freezer dies, grants get rejected so money is tight, a manuscript you spent forever writing gets trashed by the reviewers, all of these happen to every scientist at some point in their career. Learning how to handle failure and rejection without letting it impact your personal feelings is critical for success and can be one of the hardest things to master.
