What's been the best opportunity

for you at CU? Being able to do hands-on research work has been the best opportunity for me so far at CU. I currently am working at the TC Neuroscience Lab on campus where I help set up and debug EGG experiments. 

How has COVID-19 changed school for you? COVID-19 has resulted in all of my classes being online this year. My work at my research lab is also on hold as we are not able to have volunteers come in for the experiments.

How has the scholarship helped you? This scholarship has helped remove some of the financial burdens of being a college student. As a result, I am able to dedicate my time towards other prospects such as my volunteer work for the Highland Trail Retirement Home and Avista Hospital. By doing so, I am able to gain more experience in the medical field.

What are your future plans? I am currently planning on attending medical school and becoming a doctor.
