As an undergraduate Biology student, she has been a regular customer of the University & College of Science library for research or leisure.
Browsing the leaves
With the digital world conquering the globe nowadays, a trip to the library or the old gesture of leafing through the pages of a book becomes an option that most us may not even consider. Yet books tell a lot more story aside from its content: the origins of our curiosity.
With her soft fingers
She took a book
Page by page revealed to her
An adventure she enjoyed to look.
She dived into the sea and soared the sky
Met ammonites and mammoths of the past
She glided over galaxies so wide
Onto the night sky full of stars.
Brighter and brighter her eyes became
Now everything’s going to change
Her life will never be the same
For now anything in the world she can attain.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
