We are STEM squad photo a day challenge. Day 2: HISTORY. My history is my family, especially my parents. They’ve always been wonderfully supportive of all I’ve wanted to do in life. They have also taught me the value of education. It was never would I go to college, but rather where do I want to go to college. I’m the first in my family to get a PhD and they believed in me every step of the way (even if at times they didn’t understand those steps – crazy world of academia)! I’m proud they are my history.
