How did you choose your area of study?
Growing up I was a curious child. I was one of those kids who would continue to ask “why?” until all my frustrated parents could say was “just because!”. The number of times I was grounded for “dissecting” worms, ants, slugs, and rollie pollies is more than I care to admit. I’ve always loved science therefore I knew early on I wanted to dedicate my life to it. Neuroscience is a field that offers me the ability to explore my love for science and biology, whilst allowing me an outlet for that natural curiosity of mine. The brain is the key to our humanity, it is by all accounts the most pivotal organ to human life. Therefore it is only natural for me to want to learn about and explore this amazing entity to the furthest of my abilities. After my time at LFC I plan attend medical school or do graduate work in the fields of neuroscience and biology. What I enjoy most about LFC is that that professors are truly invested in our success and do everything that they can to help us attain it.
