    For example, the males in The Big Bang Theory are all scientists. Leonard Hofstadter is an experimental physicist at Caltech in Pasadena, Sheldon Cooper works as a theoretical physicist at Caltech, Howard Wolowitz works as an aerospace engineer and former NASA astronaut at Caltech in Pasadena, and Raj Koothrappali is an Indian-born astrophysicist who lives in Pasadena and works at Caltech.

    steps in their head, but after noticing my sweaty palms and rapid heart beat, I was distracted by my rising cortisol levels. Endocrine hormones were the topic of discussion that week in physiology lecture, and I knew I was in a situation where I had to “fight” instead of take “flight.” Although still nervous, the brief distraction from the bright lights and hundreds of individuals in the coliseum was much needed. My proclivity towards the scientific base of things is the reason I am…
