How did you choose your area of study?

Neuroscience has always been my interest and passion. Since I’ve always been fascinated with how the brain works and how it affects behavior, I know neuroscience was the right major for me. It has challenged and pushed me beyond my limits, both academically and personally. Through the neuroscience program, I have had a couple of unique opportunities conducting research in a laboratory setting. By conducting experiments in my studies, I was able to use relevant data and research to aid me in a thesis as well as prepare me for further research in my graduate studies. This experience has reassured my dreams of investigating and conducting behavioral cognitive research in the future as a full time career.
