I had the pleasure of visiting Bletchley Park this year. The home of the WWII code breakers. I got to see the work and legacy of one of my favorite mathematicians, Alan Turing. What I remember most about Alan Turing from my visit was his Teddy Bear. You see, as an adult Turing bought a teddy bear he named Porgy. He used this teddy bear to practice his lectures. His outfit was lovingly crafted by Turing’s sister and I think makes the teddy bear rather unique.

Enthusiastic Scientists are embracing community building. I feel this as someone searching for their place. My love of mathematics come from a place full of hardships. That makes me want to communicate and connect with others about my experiences.
