On the 22nd of September, I had the pleasure of hosting Nidhi Parekh’s #SciCommChat on behalf of my STEM First! Gen. community.

Experienced with making some short, creative science videos, I can affirm myself as a beginner science communicator. Knowledge of scientific concepts can be accompanied by engaging an audience…

Today marks two notable events, one of which is difficult topic to write on. I would rather warm my fingers up with the more propitious news, brought to you by The Baskerville Pups. We recently finished our first book in the Sherlock Holmes Canon; the discussions and month passed successfully…

Last month, we covered Sir Arthur’s first Sherlock Holmes’ story, A Study in Scarlet (STUD). The Pups kickstarted with some rather engrossing conversations; as the days went by, we shared our favorite parts of the story. The read went very quickly, but the Baskerville Pups must now move on to…

Aw man, this is awesome! I get super excited when I learn someone was homeschooled like myself. I too been homeschooled all the way to senior year, hehe! And you are absolutely right, homeschooling allows us to take charge of our lives at an early age. Understanding how we put…

Last year, I submitted my first question to them, and I happened to…

Hi friends — it’s Monique — the over-user of em dashes and creator of STEM First! Gen.

While we are working on an eye opening tutorial on how to submit your pitches to the publication, I thought it would be great (for the moment) to work out some steps to…

I’m Monique — the creator and editor of STEM First! Gen., the new Medium publication initiative made for first generation STEM lovers and science communicators.

I always wondered, “Is there a community where members have unique opinions, yet they still believe in the same concept and can understand each other…

My personal blog, Faith’s Microbiome and Tech Blog, recently went unresponsive. For a moment, I lost all of my posts, media, and other content. An entire year of work, gone. Of course I could have solved the problem, but before that, I was asking myself where to start. WordPress? Jetpack…
