Tomorrow it's #earthday and in many cities in the US there's gonna be a #sciencemarch Let's be honest: the biggest problems over the course of history have been caused by people who either misused science or labeled it as the wrong way to go. And we still see this every day. I march because I think a fact is a fact and there's no alternative one. I march because I want policies and laws to be shaped by facts rather than opinions. I march because I believe in a world guided by science as THE ONLY way to interpret facts, rather than faith. And there's a reason why they called this rover 'curiosity': without curious people, without people questioning the world, there'd be no science, no progress, no future. #whyimarch . . . #sciencenerd #science #scienceworld #sciencerules #sciencemarchnyc #sciencematters #earthfocus #earth #earthhour #marchforscience #marchforsciencenyc #resist #resistance #mars #marsrover #curiosity #nasa #space #explore #explorer #exploration #nyc

I spent my NYC birthday night in the Google offices in New York to join @equalitynoworg and The NoVo Foundation for an inspiring event around the #WomenWhoMadeNY It was amazing to see women with so different backgrounds coming together to shape a more women friendly future for our city.

On April 19th, 2015, a girl and her two big bags got to Bed-Stuy late in the evening. She was standing on the sidewalk in that unknown neighborhood, holding her phone and texting her host that she was there. "What if they don't get back to me?", she asked herself getting anxious for the lack of feedback, wondering what she could do. She was by herself in a new place, in a new country, with a whole new life to build from scratch. What if things started going wrong, badly wrong, since the very beginning? She knew she could rely on herself only. She knew her choice would have a lot of unexpected consequences she would have to tackle alone. She knew, from there on, her only option was moving forward. And, yes, she was scared for putting herself in that position. Scared as hell. Until the door behind her opened and a smiley face popped up, welcoming her to her first temporary NYC home. I don't think being fearless means never being scared. I think it means getting to a point where you can control your fear and use it as energy to make your dreams come true. Two years ago, I was that scared girl on the sidewalk. Today, I pride myself for being a bit like the #fearlessgirl and I can say: I DID IT. . . . #fearless #fearlessgirl #shepersisted #nyc #newyork #newyorker #iloveny #womenempowerment #women #girlspower #girls #speakup #showup #iwd2017 #womensday #internationalwomensday #resist #resistance

"The important thing is not to stop QUESTIONING. Curiosity has its own reasons for existing." Curiosity is what moves the world, what allows science to progress. If none had never asked a question about the world we live in, we'd still be clueless about the rules of nature. On Saturday, I'll participate in the @marchforsciencenyc to say that alternative facts have a place only in alternative realities, that we need to fight to protect our planet. One day, science will save the world. . . . #sciencemarch #sciencemarchnyc #einstein #quotes #quoteoftheday #science #sciencerules #scienceworld #nerd #curiosity #showup #speakup #resist #resistance #earthday #sciencenerd

It's #nationalparkweek! I wish I could go back to Death Valley right away for more hiking. Walking alone for more than 100 miles in a week, "no wheels, just legs", hearing the coyotes when you're in the backcountry staring at amazing skies...Do yourself a favor and go to a National Park this week! And remember to always use the principles of 'leave no trace': we are guests on this Earth, let's respect it πŸŒπŸ’œ [In the pic: me calling my dragons from one of the 'rock thrones' on the way to Corkscrew Peak.

Central Park always has some magic. Whenever I need a quick nature fix, I put on my sneakers and go for a walk there. Yesterday, I walked about 10 miles without even realizing it. I miss hiking so bad already. Planning next escapade for the first weekend in May. Craving some serious introversion in the woods! . . . #centralpark #centralparkmoments #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #nature #blossom #spring #flowers #introvert #introverting #introvertlife #parkπŸ€ #stroll

Today, I've taken my first 'Bystander Intervention' training, organized by The Accompany Project of The Arab American Association. Now, more than ever, I feel like it's important to educate myself, as a New Yorker and as a white privileged person, on how to intervene when someone is being harassed and be able to de-escalate violence in an effective way. #Resist by learning, #resist by standing up to hate and violence. . . . #resistance #respect #protect #nohate #nofear #noviolence #standup #speakup #nyc #newyorkcity #consciousness #intervention #accompanyproject #bystanderintervention #bystander

Last night, I participated in my first Town Hall, with NYC Congresswomen Nydia Velazquez and Carolyn Maloney. I'm amazed by the energy of these women and their panelists, who talked about immigration, public affordable housing, healthcare and budgeting. Their ability to explain complex policies and budgets in a simple and engaging way left me with the feeling 'I want more of this' and 'I wanna be more involved'. Resistance is also just showing up to educate yourself on government matters - without having to be sociable if you don't want to, which makes it really introvert-friendly. . . . #resist #resistance #speakup #showup #townhall #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #congress #congresswomen #democracy #democrats #progress #progressive #democraticprocess #debate #community #healthcare #nystateofhealth #immigration #sanctuarycity #introvert #introvertlife #introverting

I don't wanna have to wear a mask to breathe and avoid pollution, do you? So, what about a challenge on one of the big sources of air pollution? Yup, I'm talking about cars. I've always been a fan of public transportation with its pros and cons, and I have the big perk of living in NYC where a car is a fancy luxury. But even the times I took a cab/Uber in two years are less than 10 - and in most of those occasions I wasn't by myself. The challenge is: can you make it ONE WEEK without a car? Remember, if you don't drive, you can READ 😍 . . . #environment #earthday #earthfocus #dogood #air #airpollution #nocars #activism #saveearth #activist #climatechange #challenge #activismchallenge #introvert #introverting #introvertlife

As an introvert, I have a special relationship with nature and, in particular, with water. I want to remind myself of all the damage we're making to the sea with oil and plastic and act on it! Here's the challenge: every other week, name 'a day without plastic', when you don't buy anything that includes plastic or a plastic container/bag. Activism starts from little steps. . . . #activism #activist #introvert #introvertlife #pollution #ocean #saveearth #savetheocean #nomoreplastic #plastic #plasticbag #turtle #sea🌊 #seaturtle #dogood #Earth #earthfocus #earthday #environment
