If you ever had got zero marks in a subject, then you get to listen to a lot of lectures from all sides. But have you ever heard that a famous person has praised a person who got zero marks?
Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, has praised a woman who scored zero in Quantum Physics. A woman named Sarafina Nance tweeted and wrote how she got 0 marks in quantum physics and how she is a successful astrophysicist.
4 years ago I got a 0 on a quantum physics exam. i met with my professor fearing i needed to change my major & quit physics. today, i’m in a top tier astrophysics Ph.D program & published 2 papers.
STEM is hard for everyone—grades don’t mean you’re not good enough to do it.
