Graduate Student Stages Maternity Photos with Her Ph.D. Thesis

By 1 year ago

Proud mother Sarah Whelan Curtis delivered her genetics thesis with grace and dignity.

Her defense is scheduled for June 14. Until then, Curtis has decided to share a maternity-style newborn photoshoot with her project. “Yes, I did a photoshoot with my thesis,” tweeted Curtis on Monday. “Longest labor ever.”

The photos depict Curtis holding the 183-page thesis wrapped in a pink-and-blue blanket like a baby. She said, “I have a lot of nieces and nephews, and my mom told me, ‘Either get a Ph.D. or give me a grandchild.’ I got my doctorate.”
