Knowledge Catalyst, me?
One evening, my friend and I, Anna Barbosa, were talking about what defines our personalities. We realized that curiosity is the strongest motivation that drives me to learn about and to explore everything around me. Curiosity itself is not enough for me. I cannot just gather knowledge for the sake of it. In fact, my curiosity for knowledge can only be met by my passion for sharing what I learn with everyone else.
We asked ourselves, maybe there is a way to summarize these important parts of my personality and to inform people about who I am. That’s when Anna said, “Yes! It is like you are a knowledge catalyst.” And that was it! What better way to describe my drive and curiosity for knowledge and my love for teaching (and for science!)? I then realized that I am not only a knowledge catalyst, but I also build communities of people who are also passionate about discovering and sharing knowledge with others. I realized that I am a part of a movement bigger than myself, a knowledge catalyst movement!
