How did you choose your area of study?
“I am studying neuroscience because the brain has always fascinated me, and neuroscience allows me to further understand the brain from a biological standpoint. Being able to study the biological aspect of the brain will enhance my understanding of how the brain works and how that influences one’s behavior and emotion. After completing my undergraduate degree at Lake Forest, my dream is to attend medical school and open up my own practice as a psychiatrist.”
