B.S. in Biochemistry, Minor in Writing
Stony Brook University- 2011-present, Expected Graduation: 2015
During my time in the university, I explored aspects of the biological sciences to hone in on an area of interest. It was in my immunology course that I realized how fascinated I was by molecular interactions. They may not be visible, but they still have a profound effect. My interest validated my decision to pursue a degree in biochemistry. As I gained theoretical experience through my coursework and practical experience through my research, I began to prepare myself for a career involving pharmaceuticals.

In addition to pursuing a degree that will provide me with scientific knowledge, I decided to take writing classes to enhance my communication skills. I am specifically interested in professional writing to learn how to share data and analysis. I have so far learned how to present to my target audience and ensure that I can effectively communicate my work with my colleagues. You can explore my path in developing skills towards my career in my professional autobiography.
