My current focus is on building my competency in the foundational math and science skills relevant to my new biology major. I’ll be putting great energy into my academics in the coming year to cement my confidence in my new field and to allow me to explore opportunities for research and potential specializations. I’ll be acting as Delta Tau Delta Gamma Beta Chapter’s director of recruitment for the 2015–2016 academic year, and plan to increase our chapter size with a well-planned recruitment week and year-round recruiting events. I’ll be the Senior Resident Advisor for Lewis, Graduate, and South halls next year; and I hope to be a good support to my excellent team. I’m set to graduate in 2018 with a major in a biology-related field and a minor in architecture.
It is very important to me that the work I do has a benefit to mankind, and I hope that the path that I choose takes me to a place where I can most effectively help the survival and success of the human race. I also plan to follow my interests, and at the moment I find the puzzle of human genetics very enticing. Research into genomics and genetic manipulation is controversial, and I think that I would like to play a role in shaping both the methodology and ethical debate in the field. If curated mindfully, it is a field that could be extremely beneficial to the future of the human race.
