As a student at the University of Minnesota, I'm working my way through school to become a physician. I spend my time drawing, watching movies/TV, obsessing over Star Trek, Space Dandy, Marvel, reblogging feminism, and increasing my knowledge of facts.
The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire. After seeing children in India drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool, she decided, in her words, “to find a solution to the global water crisis.” And then she actually made some progress towards that goal, developing a solar-powered water purification system.
She is the future
Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?
