Biological Sciences (Pre-Medicine)
Mathematics, Dance, Biochemistry
Why you chose your major
For my major, Biological Sciences was something that I was interested in, and it helped that it matched with a lot of pre-health requirements.
For my mathematics minor, I really enjoyed taking math courses and my advisor pointed out that I would only have to take one more class to earn a minor.
Favorite and/or most impactful course
The class that has made the biggest impact on me has been CHEM 251 (Organic Chemistry) with Dr. Vickery. I thought not only was this class very interesting but it also helped me feel like I was on the right path. Dr. Vickery is also one of the most friendly professors and truly wants her students to do well.
Research or internship experience
This past summer, I did research with the SURP (Summer Undergraduate Research Program) at UNMC. I was very fortunate to work in the OB/GYN lab with Dr. Shyamal Roy doing research on the gata4 and gata6 mRNA and protein expression in follicular cells of the hamster ovary.
I am the Learning Communities Ambassador for UNL Learning Communities, the President of American Medical Women's Association, and tutor.
Why you chose Nebraska
I decided to come to Nebraska because my grandfather had gone to UNL in the 1960's and when I came to visit, I loved it! The husker pride, the student spirit, everything.
Student Ambassadors are undergraduate students who talk to prospective students, parents, alumni, and the general public about the college.
