And a link to the article I used from the Guardian: Every 16-year-old in Sweden to Receive Copy of We Should All Be Feminists

Here is a link to a different article based on the same topic: Sweden Gives ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ To Every 16-Year-Old Student

This video was one of the biggest source of exposure for Adichie.

I am interested in a lot of subjects—especially Psychology, Biology and most topics based on feminism/women’s studies. However, for the purpose of my major and career, I want to focus my time and energy toward Biology. I chose Biology because I wanted to study genetics, this is not only because I find human genes to be fascinating, but also because I wanted to have a better knowledge of the subject and I believe that it would be incredibly helpful during my years in medical school. 

Oklahoma State University has various types of resources to help me achieve my goals. One of the best attractions at OSU is the Edmon Low Library, which is strategically organized to provide students with all of the resources necessary for their success. There are thousands of data collected over time that are available for students in many different colleges and interests. 

In order to fully understand the complex world of genetics, I will be enlisting help from Mr. Steve Locy, the head liaison librarian specializing in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. The main webpage for Microbiology and Molecular Genetics is clear and concise. Since it can be quite overwhelming to do a research project or to delve into a new subject, the webpage provides students with information on how to begin their research and ways to make their journey as simple and stress free as possible. 

There are a lot of online resources available but one of the most highly recommended website for peer-reviewed journals is The Cambridge University Press, which has a collection of some of the earliest and the latest scientific data. It is important to search and utilize credible sources to acquire the best and the most accurate information and for me, personally, the Edmon Low Library is one of the best places to begin my research on human genetics.

My name is Mila Rob. I am a Pre-Med student, majoring in Biology because I have a great interest in studying human genetics and minoring in Psychology. I have many goals in life that seem impossible to achieve in an average human lifetime. However, I am very ambitious and my ambitions are a few of my biggest motivations to succeed and always try my best to overcome any obstacles that I will encounter now or in the future. 

I am a feminist which was an important element in my decision to become an Obstetrician/Gynecologist, or most commonly known as OB/GYN. I am a big proponent of equal rights and equal opportunity for all. I believe that becoming an OB/GYN is an excellent opportunity to educate the next generation of young girls and boys. I consider myself to be a realist rather than an idealist, therefore my decision to become a doctor required careful consideration. I’m aware of the diligent work and dedication necessary for me to achieve my goals but I am incredibly passionate and I want to use my knowledge to encourage others to be their best and be independent.  

I want to make a change that will not only benefit me but the world around me. I hope to provide young girls, women and mothers around the world with all the resources that are part of their basic human rights and necessary to their health. It is imperative to me that young boys and girls everywhere are taught to reach for their full potential, taught to respect themselves as well as those around them. It took years for me to understand that change does not occur overnight rather time, inspiration and determination that are crucial to these revolutionary times.
