#Repost @what_the_fari • • • • • • Brown University Sharing a little bit about myself on Transformation Tuesday today: On the left is me at the end of my Junior year at @pennstate (during a SWE event) and on the right is me, starting my final year at @brownu (during Grad IO) 😊 I loved myself back then, and I love myself today. But I come from a culture where being plus-size is a crime. No one was interested to hear my struggle with PCOS, no one cared that I starved myself to death. All I ever heard was, "You're fat!" (I still hear that!) Today, have learned to better manage my PCOS. I no longer starve myself to death, and I enjoy working out. I try to live a healthy life, but I certainly don't deprive myself off of my fair share of ice cream! 😋🍦 My size is just a number. Whether I am a size 18 or 8, I still use the words "Biomedical Engineer" and "Scientist" (and occasionally "Nerd") to describe myself. The scientific community really doesn't pay attention to the curvy-fit of your jeans, as long as your curves from the data make sense! 😉 Don't stop believing in yourself. 📸: Penn State SWE and Soyoon Kim (@globalbrowncenter) #wtFari #Bangladeshi #BiomedicalEngineer #Scientist #Steminist #StudentOfColor #InternationalStudent #PennState #SocietyOfWomenEngineers #BrownUniversity #BrownGraduateSchool #PCOS #BrownGirlsInSTEM #WomenInSTEM #DreamChaser #Health #TransformationTuesday

Hello friends! Long time, no talk on the internet!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We’ve been taking a little breather lately to take care of other commitments that seemed to have piled up (surprise surprise 😂 ) AND to take care of ourselves by eating well and trying to move beyond our desks... the basics, truly. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Our newsletter is still going to go out next week with the latest news and media we’ve consumed lately about women in engineering / diversity in the workplace. If you aren’t signed up, whatcha doing???? What are you waiting for?? Sign ups can be done via the blog 🥳. Do it for yourself or send it to a friend! Our musings make a great holiday gift 🎄 ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Anyways, we may be on here every now and then, but it likely won’t be all that regular. We’ll be back in the new year all *refreshed* and just rearing to get back to business.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Your eng gals, Olivia and Elaine ✌️

Trying something new this past weekend - Shut off from all screens for at least half a day every weekend. I know it’s extremely hard to stay away from your phone for so long! But if you think how we lived 10 years ago without constantly looking at our phones, it’s possible! . A weekly digital detox can do so much good 1️⃣ The radiation from phones, computers and TV causes eye fatigue and also damage. Your eyes will definitely thank you for giving them a break😑 2️⃣ Enjoy time with family and people around you, human connection is better without digital devices around 3️⃣ Go for a walk and enjoy nature🏞 4️⃣ Rejuvenation by going to a spa or just relaxing at home💆🏻‍♀️ . Do you have a digital detox schedule? Has it helped you? Let me know in the comments below 😀 . . . . . #digitaldetox #rejuvenation #switchoff #socialmediadetox #weeklydetox #mentalhealth #womendecode #technology #girlswhocode #developer #womenintech #data #womenindata #python #societyofwomenengineers #datascience #techindustry #cloudplatform #dataengineering #womenwhocode #womenentrepreneurs #tech #womenempowerment #productivity

According to the AWIS study, #womenofcolor in STEM are assumed to be more junior than they are. . Has this happened to you? How did you handle it?

How often do you talk to people outside of your network? It could be a person from another team at work, client or even your company executives, student from a different course if you are a student. . One thing on my list has been to attend more networking events. Earlier I use to signup for lost of events, when the time came I backed out thinking I wouldn’t be able to make conversation with anyone or feel out of place. But as I advanced in my career, I realized it was no more a choice for me and I had to commit to attending them, if I wanted to be a ally, mentor or share my thoughts. . The latest meetup I went to was a discussion about #womenintech where I had the opportunity to meet women with different backgrounds and stages in their career. I had no idea what to expect going into the event. After the panel discussion, I found VALIDATION - ✅In the decisions I am making in my career ✅In the doubts I had about career advancement ✅In the fact that you people will be willing to help, all you have to do it ask ✅The power of networking is true💫 . . . . . #powerofnetworking #networking #womeninstem #meetups #technology #developer #data #dataengineering #womenindata #womenwhocode #cloudplatform #tech #datascience #womendecode #dataengineer #python #bigdata #womenentrepreneurs #girlswhocode #code #productivity #techindustry #societyofwomenengineers #womenempowerment #coderlife

Ready for take off!!! ✈️ Off to Neverland!! 🇺🇸 . A lot of much emotions going on right now. Been super busy with a lot going on as you see in my Social stories which is why I couldn’t post but be present. Fact: We said no to this opportunity to live abroad when it was presented to us the first time. We were not sure if I could operate my career and continue to serve my clients and brides. However, God showed us a way. So glad we didn’t turn it down again the second time. 23 exact months living abroad. 20 international trips, 10 counties explored, 2 major mountains hiked, lifelong friends discovered, unforgivable memories and exponential career growth... We certainly have been grateful and blessed to have meet so many people from all over the world and whom I can proud say are life long friends. More posting to come. We are ready to take off.... will post soon from 🇺🇸.

Something I struggle the most with but I have realised that even if you don't really know your destination with certainty, it's important to take a step forward towards what feels like will help make our dreams a reality. - Follow @mycreativerebellion - Tag • Comment • Share 💚
