Ankita Patil, a graduate student at Drexel University College of Medicine created this cartoon in response to a comment by Ellie Cantor at Drexel Med’s Careers Beyond the Bench 2016. Ellie said she didn’t always know what her next “adventure” would be, but she knew she would recognize it if she kept her eyes open and her mind receptive. The concept resonated with Ankita and prompted this drawing. Ankita is a talented artist who also designed one of the lab coats depicting famous women scientists worn by AWIS-PHL volunteers at the Philadelphia Science Council. See photos from this event.
