Why you chose your major

Science was always my favorite subject in high school and I enjoy the challenge and knowledge that I gain from the courses within my major

Favorite and/or most impactful course

Chemistry 109, This class is the reason why I have been able to excel in later classes. I started at UNL by taking Chem 109 and it taught me how to efficiently study for college level courses.

Research or internship experience

I am currently apart of Learning And Development Research (LADR) with Dr.Finch in the Psychology Department. We focus on how children can grow their self-regulation skills and motivation through their interactions with parents, teachers, and peers.

Other involvement

I am a Teaching Assistant for the Chemistry Department and teach the lab portion of Chemistry 109.

Why you chose Nebraska

Close to home and the best option financially
