I'm excited about
I, like most of us, am fascinated with how our brain, and our nervous system in general, allows us to experience the world in a uniquely human way. I am excited to learn about the biological and physiological mechanisms that underlie learning, memory, emotion, and behavior.
I have taken ENGL 182, and numerous writing based classes through the UW Honors Program with various interdisciplinary focuses. Outside of writing and English courses, I have taken the General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Introductory Biology series, along with MATH 124 and 125, so feel free to ask me about a variety of classes.
Ask me about
I love playing and listening to music, dancing, hiking, reading, watching films, and working towards perfecting the art of making a good cup of coffee.
Notable academic failure
I came into college thinking that I had to confidently and unwaveringly know what I wanted to study and what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. With this mindset, I restricted myself from pursuing passions outside of my pre-health track during my freshman year. At the start of my sophomore year, I realized that I needed to pop the little bubble I had created around myself. I joined clubs, returned to the extracurricular activities that I loved, and took interdisciplinary classes that broadened my knowledge in various fields. My biggest regret is not doing this sooner, but I’m glad that I have allowed myself to pursue a variety of interests that have left me feeling much more fulfilled.
