Last, but not least… more exciting news!!!!!!Â
One of our authors, Dr. M Jacksonâ€” (whose second book, The Secret Lives of Glaciers, just signed by Green Writers Press!!!) has been named a 2018 TED GLOBAL FELLOW!Â
Here is what she wrote …
â€śBeing named a 2018 TED Fellow feels extraordinary and validating. I grew up rural and poor, and told over and over I was neither smart nor strong enough. The idea of being a scientist was not even in my realm of possible. But my parents kept encouraging me. And when they died, I nearly gave in. Nevertheless, I drew on the strength they gave me, and I kept going further. And even today, when I am told over and over that my work is not “science” enough, or that my Ph.D. does not qualify me to be an expert on climate change (it’s real), or when being a female scientist is seen as sufficient grounds to harass & attack, I keep going, energized by validation from the TED Fellows Program and so many others.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Here’s to inspiring and encouraging the next generation of female scientists, and working each day to make our world better.â€ť Â LINK: https://blog.ted.com/meet-the-2018-class-of-ted-fellows-anâ€¦/
