“I was afraid. I was afraid to ask the right question when I was curious. I was afraid to state my opinion. I was afraid to come up to a professor and simply say that I am interested in their work. I was afraid to ask that same question that could lead me to the novel scientific discovery. Don’t be afraid. Be yourself. You got this far being yourself, and it will take you further.”
