When I decided I wanted to become a marine biologist, finding a university was easy. UNCW was one of the top programs in the country and when I visited it, I fell in love. When I decided I wanted to be an aquarium educator, finding a program became a lot more difficult. Lucky for you, I’m here to help.
I want to welcome you to my blog. This feels like the first day of class when the professor asks everyone to stand up, say your name, your program, your year, and something interesting about yourself. How do you decide? Do you stick with the easy stuff like “Hi, I’m Megan. I’m in my second year in the STEM Education Doctoral Program. I’m from Indiana, I have two sisters, and a cat”? Or do you get a little more interesting and tell everyone “Hi, I’m Megan. I’m in my second year in the STEM Education Doctoral Program. Last year I got to swim with a whale shark”?
Either way it goes, by the time your turn is over and you’re half way around the room you think of a really cool story you wish you had told. That’s sort of how I feel writing this first blog post. However, the great thing here, as opposed to class, is that I get to tell as many stories I want.
