Over the past few months I have been trying to improve my abilities as a science writer through my website. However, I have also been sending my writing out to other websites, and I have gotten a lot of help and positive feedback. In September I started writing for The People Project, and just this past month I started writing for the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada (which was a significant personal achievement for me). And one of my articles was published by American Humanist back in October. However, I recently got an opportunity to write for Scientific American Guest Blog, which was my biggest opportunity so far as a science writer. I was very nervous while composing the article but I had a lot of help from my friends, and they helped improve the article and my writing in general. Today it was published and it is a little surreal to see my name on the Scientific American website. Like a lot of people who grew up loving science, Scientific American was one of my favourite publications.
In the future, I hope I can continue to write for them. But for now I’m going to enjoy this moment. You can check out the article –> here!
