2021 was anything but easy. We’ve all dealt with a lot this year and each one of us should feel proud for simply making it to the end of the year. Congratulations to ALL OF US! 🎉🤩  

Granted that this is the most wonderful time of the year… but it’s also time for year-end reflections and we want to do a special one with you – What was your 2021 Academic Highlight? That one moment in the year that made you feel most proud of your work or how far you’d come along your academic journey. It could be anything…maybe you started a research project or nailed an experiment, maybe you started a PhD or completed one, maybe your grant proposal got accepted or you wrote your first paper, maybe you got published or maybe you defended your thesis.

Remember that no Academic Highlight is too big or too small. They’re all special and we’re here to celebrate each one. So don’t hesitate to participate. Let’s spread some holiday cheer! 

How this will work and what you need to do:  

Step 1: Complete the sentence “My 2021 Academic Highlight is ___________________.” It can be anything that happened in your professional life this year that you value. Choose one moment/experience/achievement/win that stands out as your Academic Highlight of 2021.

Step 2: Add a comment below this thread with your complete Academic Highlight sentence. Please try to keep it as short as possible. 

Step 3: Here’s where the R Voice Team comes in. Once you’ve added your comment under this post, one of us (@Andrea Hayward @Jayashree Rajagopalan @Kakoli Majumder) will create a special R Voice Academic Highlight Badge for you. Once created, we’ll send the badge over to you via R Voice DM (or email, if that’s what you prefer). 

Step 4: Once we’ve sent you the Academic Highlight Badge, you need to post it on R Voice as a new post. This way the entire community will be able to see your Academic Highlight and cheer you on! 

Here's a preview of the badges (festive, right?) 😊

Sounds like fun, right? Let's get posting! 😎
