What I love the most is the opportunity to help people. I am very interested in pharmacology and neuroscience because it involves diseases of the brain and there is still so much that is unknown. If someone is sick they will be unable to function properly in society which not only affects them but the people around them. I am interested in clinical pharmaceutical sciences because I am interested in doing research that directly impacts people’s lives and the quality of healthcare and medicines they receive. My goal is to continue with my current pursuit of a biology degree with a concentration in ecology and environmental sciences with a minor in chemistry. I will continue to expand my research experience by starting a research project with the aid of my Ecology professor while pursuing other research opportunities. I also plan on applying for an additional internship opportunities next summer in order to try to continue pursuing research opportunities in every way possible. After I graduate I hope to continue doing research through a doctorate program and will then become a professor at an institution in which I can continue doing my own research while teaching others the knowledge I have gained.
