I have some very exciting news that I am not only proud, but completely honored to share!
This week I applied for membership with the NASW, a prestigious writing association based on Science Literacy and Communication. Not only was I accepted, but within a few days, have been given responsibilities to run their twitter account @culturedish, but more importantly, they have asked me to serve on their Diversity Committee!
This is an important role, one that is on a complete volunteer basis, that I am very excited to take up!
From creating boards to decide on who gets funding, and what projects get funded, as well as how the organization can promote, and use diversity to its most capable extent to better the world of science writing, and science in general.
There are many projects that this committee works on through out the year, and I am very excited to not only join those projects, to but come up with, and work on my own.
I cannot wait to do great things, report on, do, share, and explore some great science!
For more information, please visit our site here.
This is a very exciting opportunity, and I cannot wait to see what happens next! Be sure to continue to follow me on by own blog right here, as well as across all of my social media platforms to keep up with me.
On another note, I am starting to look at Grad Schools for my Ph.D! Its a very exciting time!
A happy Earth Day to everyone! We will be celebrating with a new episode of “The Story of Us”! So be sure to tune in!
Until next time!

Very well deserved. I’ve been interested in Paleoanthropology since I was a teenager. I volunteered for IHO for years, working on digitalizing their library and making copies of Lucy fossils for museums and educational institutions. I now volunteer for the Leakey Foundation, writing articles on subjects such as Fossil Finders. Currently, I’m working on a database of their researchers, a task that will never end! I love what you have done for the public on the subject of evolution and, specifically, human evolution. You have done more in a short time than many schools and organizations have in decades. Thanks for thinking of those of us who do not have the degrees but still have an insatiable interest in this subject.
