How did you choose your area of study?

Since a young age, I have been interested in the way people behave and after taking AP Psychology in high school I realized I also have a passion for understanding what goes on in people’s brain that causes them to act the way they do. I chose Lake Forest College because of the Neuroscience major and it has been one of the best decisions I have made in college. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, I have had the opportunity to take several science courses that allowed me to learn what goes on in our brain molecularly, behaviorally and even in everyday life when we listen to music. From working on several projects with classmates and conducting research in lab to presenting at conferences, I believe my Neuroscience major has prepared me to be very successful in pursuing a career in medicine.
