Meet Brielle Ferguson

From Brielle:

"Not me on a whole list with @KizzyPhD and Beyonce. 🥺 Even though I'm still not quite sure how this happened, I couldn't be more grateful to have made this year's #Root100.

To keep it 💯, since it's easy to just share wins out here, I've been pretty bummed lately because my main postdoc manuscript was rejected a few weeks ago. For perspective, this paper includes the bulk of what I've been working on for the past three years, is the reason for so many long nights and weekends, and is something I feel like I've poured my heart and soul into. Even though I know from too much experience (my PhD manuscript was rejected 5 times before it was published) this just comes with the territory, it's never easy when someone basically takes a hard pass on what feels like your baby.

This is not just to illustrate that things are hard for me too, but more so a reminder to keep in mind when you're scrolling through social media and feeling like everyone else is winning, that it's way less fun to post the losses.

For at least tonight though, I'll stop stressing about this manuscript and celebrate with this week's Bachelorette episode and a pumpkin beer. 🍻

Check out the article and full list at the link in my bio."
