The best gifts you can give your children are those that challenge and inspire them to be their best. We believe stories have the power to do that.
If you have never seen the pure unadulterated joy of a person who loves what they do, then meet Emily Graslie, Chief Curiosity Correspondent for the @fieldmuseum and the host of #TheBrainScoop, an educational YouTube channel.
As someone who had an art degree and very little to do with science, a chance encounter in the form of severed wolf heads on lunch trays became Emily’s inspiration to follow a unique path into science. Today she gets to work in one of the most joy-filled places and gets to share it with others.
We hope all the stories in this issue including Emily’s, inspire our kids to be more curious and find their own joy-filled places to work in the future.
Emily’s fascinating story is proof that it is possible to follow a path that combines your many interests! Her advice – find things you enjoy working on and they will lead you to opportunities you could not have even dreamt of! To read Smore’s feature article on Emily click here.
