Why science journalism: “I became interested in science at school and at home. My mother was a nurse and I thought I would step it up and be a medical doctor but missed it. I also loved listening to and telling stories, writing and traveling. I became a journalist after the training and mentorship from WFSJ and the MIT Knight Science program made a turning point in my career.”
