I did it! My first professional presentation! I was pretty nervous, and got little to no sleep the night before, but I did it. I presented to my team of APS Public Engagement and Office of External Affairs members my suggestions on how to move forward with the misinformation campaign.

Last Tuesday marked an important milestone of my time at FYI: the half-way point. I sampled several policy analyst tasks this week. While I have continued writing science policy articles/blurbs, I now spend more time compiling and graphing relevant data from federal agencies.

Thursday we had our virtual picnic. It began with an interesting talk by Rush Holt, former US representative and AAAS CEO. It was really interesting to hear his perspective as someone who has been part of science policy.

This past week was uneventful in both the internship and my personal life.

My girlfriend and I stayed home most of the week and cooked.

It wasn't until Thursday, our anniversary of 4 years, that we decided to get out.

This past week was fun because I was able to dive in fully to my Laura Bassi guide. Laura Bassi was born in 1711, Bologna, Italy, and went on to have a successful career as a physicist.
