Day of Heroines

We are all wonderful in our own ways,
Overqualified yet undervalued by the
Many people who underestimate us.
Every girl should know her worth, and
Never stop believing in her courage to
Stand up and let her voice be heard!

Don’t ever doubt your value, ladies!
Always remember how amazing you are!
You are all true superheroes!


A belated Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing and inspiring women out there! Keep on being the awesome superheroes you are!

A Day for Giving Thanks

There are many things that make me
Happy every single day of my life:
A loving family who always support me,
Never-ending inspiration to write, learn, and live,
Kisses and hugs from the people I love most.
So many blessings for which I’m ever
Grateful, I give thanks for today as the
Innumerable favors that make up the
Vivid beauty of my incredible life.
I wish you all a wonderful day, and may you
Never forget to be thankful for the joys in your life too!
God bless, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family! May you all have a blessed weekend!

Master of Science

Mastering a science is an
Adventure and a challenge.
Research requires strong qualities:
Intelligence, passion, and dedication.
New horizons await those seeking an
Education in the biological sciences!

Environmental marine studies are a
Challenging field to explore, as the
Oceans are teeming with all forms of
Life and complex ecosystems. Still,
Overwhelming hours of research led to the
Greatest achievement of my life!
Years of studying reef fish have truly paid off!

Ode to the Redlip Blenny

Oh strange fish, whose
Phylogeography baffles me so.
How did you traverse the Atlantic?
I thought you were Brazilian –
O. trinitatis, I called you –
But when I tested your DNA, I
Learned that you came from the East!
Everyone was amazed when I told them;
Nobody had anticipated such a result!
Never again will I make the mistake of
Inferring conclusions before obtaining results and
Underestimating the surprises of academia.
Science truly is incredible!


I think an explanation is due here. Apparently, in the final weeks leading up to my Master’s thesis defense, the only thing that was on my mind anymore was the reef fish I had been studying for almost two years. Its common name is the redlip blenny, but I mostly referred to it by its genus name, Ophioblennius. Well, now that my project is done and my thesis has been defended, I thought it fitting to see my fish off with a poem! Enjoy, and thanks for reading!
