How did you choose your area of study?
As a child, my first introduction to neuroscience was through a book of optical illusions. I marveled at how the brain could be fooled and manipulated, and so began my fascination with neuroscience. At Lake Forest College, I seized the opportunity to major in this fascinating subject. Neuroscience is one of the most exciting fields of scientific research, and I look forward to participating in it. I believe that exploring the brain and its complexities is the next step in understanding what makes us human. My goal is to attend graduate school to pursue a career in neuroscience research.
