About


Who am I?

My name is Natalie, and I'm a current first year PhD student at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine hoping to get a PhD in Microbiology and Immunology. Aside from that, I can be commonly found  studying my ass off or procrastinating by watching videos on my laptop.

       

What's this Blog About?

The whole reason behind blogging was simple: to dismantle stupid stereotypes.

I can't tell you how much stereotypes in this world make me angry. Seriously, shouldn't we realize as a society by now that these pre-set boxes we try to sort people into doesn't work anymore? People now more than ever are incredibly multi-faceted, and instead of trying to foster that individuality, we try and shove people into hypothetical boxes because it's an easier system to manage.

Specifically with this blog, my hope is to show you the many sides of females and how many of these preconceived stereotypes are inaccurate. Females can be fashion-loving, makeup-wearing individuals without being self-centered and Instagram-obsessed. Females can be book-reading, video game-playing individuals with a love for clothes and jewelry. Females can be science and math whizzes who love hanging out with friends and socializing with new people.

Bottom line?
Females are individuals that can harbor passion for more than one interest. Your love for one topic doesn't exclude you from liking other things. Shocking, isn't it?

We as females have many layers to our personalities, and those layers are formed by the things we love. Live your life, and love what you want to love. You have more than enough room to be the person you want to be in this world. Now go own it.

Chicago. Home of the best food (especially deep-dish pizza and hot dogs) that you'll ever have.
