Today is Marie Curie 144th Birthday! One of the most famous women in the history of the world, not just in the sciences, managed to change the perspective of the work of women in the field. She proved that hard work, lot of studying and great passion for your work is what makes a person brilliant! What was amazing about this women is that she believed that people can be good and so she act accordingly. She stimulated everyone around her, friends, family, colleagues, to be the best they can be by boosting their morale and sharing her prizes with them. She understood the value of nurturing her relationships and she never EVER let the fame of her success overshadow the importance of her personal life and research.
She can not be left outside of your circle of idols! Especially if you are a women or girl or scientist. Or even a human being wishing to be the best you can be. She is the most inspirational person I have ever read about, that radiate with morality and perfection.
