Emojis of a scientist and humanitarian

What are your favorite emojis?

Like most people, the most used emojis on my phone are 😊😞👍❤️ etc. However, there are a few that are special to me.

First, 👻🫐 is shorthand for booberry, my nickname for my fiancé. While we aren’t really sure where we came up with it, it’s probably related to Goldberry from Lord of the Rings.

Second, 🧬🧑‍🔬🧑‍💻all are vaguely related to my PhD work. As a genetics researcher, I of course wish there were even more descriptive emojis for my work but alas, the Unicode Consortium hasn’t approved something more descriptive.

Lastly, ⛑️ represents the work I do in the Red Cross. While I’m taking a small break due to illness, the Red Cross has been a huge part of my life. I’ve been able to make a difference in both my local community and communities across the country. The opportunity to do this work is something I hold dear and I can’t wait until I can get back to helping.
