"Going into this course, I thought I really understood my purpose as a science journalist...going through the course, I realized there is so much more I can be doing.
I hope to keep in touch with the professionals and colleagues I learned from and to continue improving my skills and content. Thank you for re-igniting my flame to spread knowledge."
