"As a laboratory scientist, I spend at least one day a week at the microscope counting cells. The little red blood cells look like pink cheerios. They come in different shapes depending on the condition of the patient. We count and differentiate the white blood cells into categories in order to give the doctors a good idea of a diagnosis. I painted my nails to resemble what we see when we look at a stained blood smear."
