Illuminating The Academic Life
I help (under)graduate students, researchers and academics at any stage to voice and overcome their #AcademicDilemmas for a better wellbeing.
What I Do
I voice #AcademicDilemmas from Twitter by retweeting, liking or commenting on others’ tweets so that their authors get community attention and support
I also disseminate, periodically, relevant scientific literature, interviews or other academic-related resources of interest for the academic community
Finally, I share my own thoughts, experiences, and dilemmas so others can find some degree of empathy and inspiration when trying to overcome their own dilemmas
If you find @AcademicDilemma valuable, please support this initiative!
