The dedication of my professors has not only cultivated a deep passion in me for environmental science, but has also inspired me to look at the world like a scientist – to question and think critically. This skill opened the door for me to participate in a large laboratory-based research project alongside two of my professors, who are studying shark thermoregulation. It’s been an honor to work so closely with such talented scientists, and to serve as a lead author on an abstract about our work. Ultimately, I hope one day to be a professor, too.
