Hi, I’m Julia Frank. I am currently an undergraduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manitoba, Canada. I’m hoping to get an MSc degree in materials science. I am also a lifelong learner and, as some people call me, an “everlasting student.” I got some courage and decided to finish my degree after 3 previous attempts before, which were interrupted by some life events. Because of my desire for knowledge, interest in science, and continuous self-improvement, I challenged myself. Finally, I made a leap to turn my interests into a career choice and went back to university to continue my education. Quitting my job, where I worked for 7 years and overtime worked my way up, was not easy, but it felt like the right thing to do. And so, in the Summer of 2017, I decided to go back to school.
In my free time, I like spending time with my family, reading, gardening (weather permitting, of course 🙂 ).
This blog is a creative outlet, a journal, and a means to connect with people sharing the same interests. It is a tool to communicate science to the world and get others inspired to keep learning, to explore, to dream.
Please join me in this exciting endeavour to learn about the new and modern programing language Julia, magnets, and much more!
