Nice Follow-Up To An Otherwise Bummer Story

Given all the current coverage of Ahmed Mohamed, it seems I was not alone in vaguely recalling a different, bright, harmless high school student whose scientific curiosity almost landed her in jail: Kiera Wilmot.

Slate has a great post about her experience which, to be honest, made me furious to read. The silver lining is that she seems to have handled all the bullshit rather well and is doing great these days.

Here’s hoping that the next time I see her name, it’s because she’s landed an enviable job at NASA or the like.
