SUFB 1089: Growing Up As A Black Marine Scientist With Carlee Jackson, Dr. Camille Gaynus, And Alex Troutman...And Their Moms, Part 2
In the second installment of my interview with three black marine scientists (and co-organizers of #BlackInMarineScienceWeek) join me and their Moms to discuss how they grew up wanting to be Marine Scientists.
This part of the interview focuses on advice the Moms would give other parents of black children who would like to become Marine Scientists. Monica (Carlee's Mom) Leslie (Camille's Mom), and Elyza discuss the importance of doing what they can to encourage their kids to become scientists and finding any and every program that will help them pursue Marine Science.
I also ask the question of how they felt about their kids become leaders and inspiration to others in helping to organize such an important week for all Marine Scientists.
Do you find this interview (Part 1 and Part 2) inspired you to become a Marine Scientist?
