Graduate student Laura Gilmour is a STEM researcher in the fields of autism and sexuality. This video not only gives her a chance to introduce some important information about resources and practices around sexuality on campus that high school students who are preparing for college may be unfamiliar with–it also allows her to share how she took her own developing intense interest and used it to shape an academic career. As a grad student, Laura’s just getting started, but her path from interest to academic research can be your path, too.
