About


Who am I?

My name is Natalie, and I'm a current undergraduate student trying to achieve a bachelor's degree in Molecular Biology. After I graduate, I'm going to attend Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine to begin my PhD in Immunology. Aside from that, I'm someone who watches entirely too much Netflix and can marathon a show or video game like you wouldn't believe.

       

What's this Blog About?

The whole reason I began blogging was to fight against the stereotype that you can either be a female interested in makeup and fashion or science/academics. There are such bad stereotypes associated with being a female who likes just one of these things, let alone both, and that aggravates me to no end! 

Fashion and makeup-loving girls get a bad rep because their passions makes them appear self-centered, materialistic, ditzy, and unintelligent, while the science girls get a bad rep because their passion for knowledge depicts them as shy, awkwardly social bookworms with no fashion sense. I don't deny that some people fit into these stereotypes, but they are largely inaccurate. Just because you're interested in one of these topics doesn't mean that you are automatically excluded from liking the other. Your passion towards one area of interest doesn't decrease the amount of passion you can feel towards something else. 

Hopefully through my blog, I'll be able to show that you can be equally passionate about two topics that exist in very different spheres. It's important to love what makes you happy, and nobody should judge you if the topics that excite you are diverse or at complete ends of the spectrum! That kind of passion regarding hobbies and interests is what makes the world turn, and it ultimately makes you a more well-rounded person in the end.
