Happy Friday!!! 🎉🎉🎉 Since joining this amazing social media STEM community, I’ve seen many of your ‘day in the life’, ‘to-do’, and ‘planning’ posts but what I’ve noticed is that some of us do ALL of the STEM things...we feed ourselves professionally, academically, etc. but we forget to squeeze in time to feed our souls. I have an extremely long commute (~1 hr) but that’s usually my only ‘me’ time during the day so I often use that time to feed and nourish my soul by listening to inspirational podcasts and TEDx talks. . . Ask yourself what will you do to feed your soul today? Meditate for 10 minutes? Pray? Read an inspirational book? Journal? Whatever it is, make sure you make time for it! . . . . . . . . . #productivity #gradlife #phdlife #phds #dissertation #dissertationlife #gradstudentproblems #blackdoctors #blackphds #academia #academic #professor #blackprofessors #teachersofinstagram #womeninacademia #womeninscience #womeninstem #womendoingscience #wocinstem #mindfulness #prayer #meditation #soulfood #foodforthesoul #quietmind

Lots of things needs to be done and dusted to complete the application process for a research degree. During this time, you will need be sure that the topic you have chosen is the one you want to stay with. However, this is only the beginning. Indeed, a Master’s / PhD degree means that you will need to manage your time. There will be papers to be written, presentations to be delivered, conferences to be attended all need to be done within the limitations of your time.

𝘚𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘢𝘴 𝘢 𝘥𝘰𝘤𝘵𝘰𝘳! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week, I successfully defended my dissertation and I guess you can call me now Dr. Pujada 😵 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It still feels weird and surreal to be called doctor but I made it through 🙌🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This wouldn't have happened without the people who have constantly inspired me, supported me, and pushed me beyond my limits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My parents were there to support me and it was probably the first time they heard me talk for more than 30 mins in English. I'm so grateful for everything they have done for me to be standing there that day. I think they were more happy and proud than me, this is really for them ❤️ (1📸) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My husband almost Dr. @aaronevodevo , can't believe this man survived these past few months haha. Thanks for your unconditional love and for standing by my side throughout this journey 💚 He was the main provider of dark chocolate 🍫 while writing my dissertation 💝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My grandpa (the best chef) and one of my best friends were there too 💕 I also had the majority of my mentors. I'm so thankful for the opportunity and patience ☺️ My lab crew, present and past members, all of them who helped me in what way or another, very thankful for them too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks to this science community who gave me a space to get inspired, share my work and random thoughts 💭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There is so much people to thank for that I would ran out space here but I truly mean it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We continued the celebration to a Peruvian restaurant (duh!). We all had a pisco sour (Peru national drink) and pollo a la brasa! WHAT! haha (2📸) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can't wait to share more with you 🙃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀ What would you like to know? 👇🏽

A shout out to everyone, really. The world so often tells us, ingrains in us, that we’re too much of this. Not enough of that. We’re too fat. We’re too skinny. We wear too much makeup. We don’t wear enough. We aren’t motivated enough. We’re too motivated. We’re too loud. We’re too quiet. We’re overly educated. We’re not educated enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the midst of all of this, it’s incredibly hard to love ourselves. It’s beyond challenging to filter out the opinions of those whose opinions truly don’t matter. It’s difficult to move beyond criticizing ourselves, merely tolerating ourselves, to a place of love. And yet, it’s possible. 🧡

Grades! I know this feel good picture doesn’t go with the dreaded topic but I thought I should share my feelings about grades. . . . I got the lowest grades I could get in two assignments of my last (read unrelated to my research) core course of my PhD. Somehow I felt the grading was unreasonable and I have been wanting to reach the professor. On the other hand, due to my fluctuating health, my advisor told me to chill a bit and be okay taking a B. I have been in this vicious loop of overthinking, maintaining my GPA for funding as an international student and angry over unreasonable grading pattern. . . . Thinking through the whole process again made me realize no one gives a rat’s a#@ about these grades until I am decently maintaining my GPA as a requirement for my grad funding. I am making peace with it. . . . #shotoniphone #gradstruggle #grades #nonsense #academia #phdchat #phdlife #womeninacademia #woc #theinternationalphd #internationalstudents #funding #gpa #tree #leaves #f4f #likeforlikes #followforfollowback

"I'm thinking," is her only source of nutrition. After traveling coast-to-coast in Canada, starting and stopping more businesses than she cares to admit (does having a "5pm lemonade stand outside a bus stop" as a seven-year-old count?), she has decided that, yes, multi-coloured LED backlights on keyboards were worth it. With almost more degrees than one can count with their (one) hand, she has confirmed that being paid to think is so far the best thing that's happened yet. And so, after promising to get a "real-job," she now spends most of her time back in academia, fusing software engineering and painting into quite a few hours per day coding (playing) in Virtual Reality creating artistic 'scapes and envisioning the future of how the world could be.

Today, I’m feeling eternally grateful for all the women in academia that I have the pleasure of working with! They wear many hats as friends, mentors, supervisors, colleagues, students, deans, counselors, parents, and more! ⁣ •⁣ We all need trusted colleagues we can lean on when times get stressful! Today, I was able to talk to a dear friend on the phone. Since starting my new faculty position and moving to a new state, I value these friendships even more. I can call and complain about something, be vulnerable about my lack of progress on a project without judgment, celebrate our successes, and share our journeys into academia.⁣ •⁣ Sure, I could’ve spent that hour grading, running stats, or writing, but having a much-needed conversation with someone who just “gets it” as a woman in academia fills my soul more than any progress on grading could’ve done.

A quick update from a follower- would really appreciate if this post was shared online and with your admissions offices: As of now, the Iranian government has blacked out all communication channels (i.e. access to website and emails) for all its citizens. This is detrimental for incoming student applications from Iran, as they will be unable to communicate with foreign university admission offices / faculty/ other staff members. They cannot confirm admission acceptances, they cannot correspond internationally nor can they reach out to any queries emailed to them. It is important for the academic community to know this, because failure for prospective students to respond could be misunderstood as lack of interest/complanency. Their inability to access communication channels can also result in Iranian students wasting a year of their life purely because of political drama. Having interacted with Iranians regularly for the last decade, I have found them to be extraordinarily hard workers- sincere, honest and very driven in all they pursue. It is heartbreaking to realise that perverted politics can hinder their initiaves to contribute to our world. . It also humbles me to know that the things Im taking for granted while I write this post are fundamental rights that have been taken away from someone who, for all I know, could be more deserving of amazing opportunities. Lets make it right and please pass on the word. . Meanwhile, I can only hope that may Irans beauty always outshine her turmoil in years to come. #phd #phdlife #gradschool #academia #research #phdhumor #postgradlife #phdstudent #phdjourney #academiclife #thesis #thesiswriting  #anxiety #phdepression #phdproblems #phdstruggles  #postgradprobs #phdblog #gradschoolproblems #gradchoollife #phdblogger  #gradschoolgrind #procrastination #notthatkindofdoctor #womeninacademia #womeninscience #homesick #selfcare #expatlife #iranprotests

I have been in a very lucky and privileged position, and I’m hoping my story inspires positive systemic changes. I moved to Slovenia in 2014 to pursue a PhD in evolutionary biology. . In this graduate program I didn’t have to attend many classes and I didn’t have to teach. PhD students are hired as employees, which grants them a living wage, sick leave, and vacation days. The PhD contract also comes with an attractive paid maternity leave policy, so when my partner and I were weighing in the options, we decided it was best to have a kid during my PhD. . During my year on maternity leave I submerged myself in motherhood. Going back to work was incredibly hard for me. My kid was sick a lot. Luckily, we were able to afford private childcare for him, but my thesis work got a big hit. . I had to be in the lab daily for experiments, which became a huge challenge because my lab is 1.5 hrs away by bus. That meant 3 hrs of commuting when my husband stayed home with our child and couldn’t drive me to work. . Having my husband working in the same institute was a huge help because he could cover for me sometimes when it came to lab work. But I still struggled a lot because I was absent from work about a quarter of the time. When you work full time you need to have a family member who can take care of your kid when they’re sick. But this isn’t a problem only in academia, it’s a challenge for all working parents. . For the most part, we had nobody to take care of our son while he was home recovering from his constant viruses. As we got our son in preventive treatment for asthma, I also got treated for ADHD and I’m writing this piece from a place of relief as I'm about to submit my thesis in a week! I DID IT! WE did it! . I’m proud of myself for pushing through, but I’m also eternally grateful for the support systems that allowed me to take maternity and sick leave, and for the people who supported me through it all.
