WE ACT for EJ. 

I fell in love with science at a young age. Thought the lab and academia was my path…until I worked at a lab. Wanted more hands-on work, so I moved to Guatemala to literally put my hands in the dirt. It was tough. Got into EPSM. I cried. Ana Baptista gave me a chance. Erica Khol-Arenas moved my heart. Jamee Moudoud helped me unlearn the old. Worked on food and fancy UN stuff. Needed more hands-on work. Found WE ACT.  My pattern is this: I need time to do and time to think. I’m still trying to find the sweet spot between the two.
