I'm a firm believer in the Latin phrase "Scientia Potentia Est", or "Knowledge is Power". Learning, whether in school or through experience, is an important part of everyone's lives, and I try to prioritize it mine.
I am currently working towards an Honors B.S in Biology and B.S in Kinesiology with a minor in Chemistry at the University of Utah. After I complete my undergraduate work, I hope to continue my education in a dual MD/PhD program.
As well as enjoying science and research, I have spent a lot of time working on my writing skills, and I am always happy to look at others' work whether it is a creative short story, argumentative essay, poetry analysis, or technical research report.
When I'm not at school, work, or in a lab, I like to spend my time with my dog, Jasmine. She goes with me on hikes, listens to me play the piano, and sits by me while I read and study. I also like to volunteer at the Best Friends Animal Center in Salt Lake. Overall, I believe the key to learning is to break topics down to their most basic steps or concepts and build upon them. The stronger a student's understanding is of a subject's foundation, the easier it is to learn the hard stuff (and be more prepared for tests!)
