AAPT Member Spotlight
Meet YaseminI am writing this narrative from my home under quarantine. These are unprecedented times for all of us. As the world is facing the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the things that we, as society, still value maintaining is teaching and learning! Despite the disheartening news and injunctions to stay home, educational practices continue through various sorts of digital means. This fact reminded me of why I chose to pursue my career in education and science. No matter what happens or when it happens, teaching and learning is the best investment we can do for our future generations.
To be a scientist was always a planned career for me although I knew very little about what a scientist does or looks like. Neither of my parents are college graduates but they have been the major support for my academic decisions to pursue STEM.
