About Starlight Connect

Starting September 10th 2021, Starlight Connect by Sara Vanessa da Silva (Meteorology name: Sara Vanessa Wxx in which wxx stands for weather), will focus on sharing news from USA news outlets only, as well as academic and scientific papers published on US journals. This way I believe, my interests in life can be clear to all in the world, and therefore misunderstandings or misinterpretations can be avoided. I do not envision sharing about any other place in the world, not for despise, but because it’s the USA that I love. Wether near or far, I will always root for the United States in science and research and will always thank it for having me as a graduate student in the past. Thank you USA. Starlight Connect is my eternal tribute to you! Although I am not American, the US means more to me than the place where I was born at. I appreciate all Starlight Connect readers’ understanding. Posts from before September 10th 2021 can in fact be about other locations, however from that date on, they will be sharing about the United States only. Thank you. Best regards. Sincerely, Sara Vanessa da Silva.
