Majored in Chemistry, Minored in Biology
Berea College, Class of 2017
From Atlanta, GA
I recently received my Bachelors in Chemistry with a minor in Biology from Berea College.
In the past couple of summers, I have completed undergraduate research, an internship with the Ryan White HIV Clinic (Atlanta, GA), as well as clinical shadowing at the Tuberculosis and Pediatric Clinic at the DeKalb Board of health in the summers of 2014, 2015, and 2016, respectively. As an undergraduate research assistant, I worked in the Berea College Biology Lab dissecting owl pellets and identifying its remains. These processes entailed following laboratory safety procedures, collecting data from various farm sites, running statistical analysis, analyzing collective data, writing a research paper (later sent for publication), and presenting research materials at the Kentucky Academy of Science. This is where I was able to learn about research methods, the techniques and methodology involved, and the various communicative ways to present research (written and verbal).
Over the years, throughout these research and internship experiences, I have worked to better myself in becoming a group oriented, focused, organized, meticulous, and serious worker, qualities I believe will be useful in the workforce as well as my future career aspirations.
