How did you choose your area of study?

I am studying the connections between brain, mind, and behavior because the brain is the most complex organ in the human body. There are still so many discoveries to be made and mysteries to be uncovered. My mother was truly an inspiration because of her courage to undergo neurosurgery after experiencing epilepsy for many years. I wish to help change the lives of people like her. My plan is to attend medical school after my undergrad here at Lake Forest College, and ultimately become a neurosurgeon in the future. What I enjoy most about Lake Forest College is the increasing number of opportunities being offered to students in the science program. The faculty want to see you succeed and they are more than willing to assist you in any way possible.
