Week 6 Reflection
Jenny Han

Strictly speaking, I no longer intend to go into STEM after college- however, I am still very interested in writing about aspects of the field (such as the proliferation of digital media).

Given that I am interested in working on LGBT-related topics throughout my career, I beleive that I still have a place to impact society in a positive fashion. The graduate school in which I am currently most interested in attending, the UCI School of Infomatics, combines theory, the statistical aspectss of social science, and the ability to become hands-on with creating digital media of one’s own. I hope to unite my soiological understanding of the situation confronting LGBT individuals with the ability to produce media thatprovides a source of support during difficult times.

Of course, there is a high risk of my becoming immersed in “ivory tower” abstract academics- and in a way oddly similar to the EpiPen price situation, academics these days are so illogically organized that I may well often be compelled to generate attention-catching work over work that I believe would actually produce a substantial difference. I believe it is my responsibility to always be aware of this possibility, and safeguard against it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
