Inspiring A Young Scientist

Great story about how a friendly scientist changed a 4-year old girl's life!: "Scientist finds professor who supported her love for bugs when she was 4".

According to the article, Dr. Rebecca Varney earned "her PhD in 2021 from the University of Alabama in biological sciences and now working with aquatic invertebrates such as crustaceans as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California at Santa Barbara."
But my favorite sentence: "Varney, in addition to keeping walking sticks in her room growing up, had millipedes and a corn snake named Beverly Crusher."
