My initial interest in physics arose from a need for an answer to the question ‘Why?’. From this point on, I pursued the path into foundational research in an attempt to find an answer to the question my younger self was so troubled with. I believe the importance of foundational physics ought to be widely discussed, particularly in its interdisciplinary relations. Outreach and inclusivity are absolutely crucial to me, and I hope to dedicate more time to these efforts. I aspire to initiate conversations about the challenges faced in academia, especially among young people.
Attending BRCP events has provided me with a supportive community of like-minded people in what can otherwise be a lonely field. I hope to give back to this community by joining BRCP and promoting its efforts. I believe that young people are essential to the discourse on improving the academic experience and I am confident that I can contribute to this discussion. I hope to be an active member of BRCP and work towards creating a welcoming, supportive, and collaborative environment within our academic sphere.
