True STEM Story...

True story:

After a particularly lively #STEM workshop with a group of middle-school and high-school students, a small child approaches me.

Aggressively tugging on my arm, I played it #cool, even though I was a bit annoyed.

With beaming eyes, he looks up and says "You're my uncle, I wanna be a #scientist like you when I grow up!"

I am truly #thankful for moments like these. I will continue to put in hours and make sacrifices for this. If my life has any purpose, I am thankful to have found it.

Most importantly, this moment required no status, big following, or filing fees. Don't forget the little things!

Happy #Thanksgiving everyone!
