How did you choose your area of study?

Neuroscience has always been an interest of mine; I have always wondered why humans are so much different than other animals and why. The brain and its behavior fascinates me and with the bonus of Brain Awareness Week and the interesting classes involving neuroscience I could not resist! I hope to go into the medical field with the aim to become a neurologist. I also plan on studying abroad and intern with a doctor in my future field. I feel that Lake Forest College provides the perfect setting to allow me to accomplish my goals in a very engaging and unique manner.
