How did you choose your area of study?
“Neuroscience has always been appealing to me. Throughout my childhood, everything I heard or read about the brain seemed captivating and usually sent me off on a tangent thinking about all the brain’s pathways, functions, and how it does such amazing things. Very shortly after arriving at Lake Forest College, I realized this was a field of study I really wanted to be a part of. Since my first course in Neuroscience, I had a strong inclination to keep learning more about the brain and all it encompasses. Lake Forest College is the perfect place to do that with an incredible team of professors always willing to help and a group of dedicated students with a curiosity that is contagious. Lake Forest College offers a unique, close-knit environment I feel very lucky to be a part of.”
