Talk with me about (New York connections preferred):

My STEM story: While sitting in my very first chemistry course, I continuously answered questions without a calculator. Moments later, my chemistry professor told me, “You will better suited as a scientist or physician. You can do the social work you desire to do there too, but you are good enough to be a scientist.”
