Year in School: Junior
With my degree in IB, I would like to do research with animals in the future.
Why you chose IB:
I chose IB because I liked how it covers so many diverse subjects from genetics to the environment. I felt it would really help me become well-rounded and fluent in all areas of biology.
Favorite IB class and why:
IB 202 - Anatomy and Physiology. I absolutely love to learn about how animals work and all their body structures. It's really interesting to see how the form of a structure is always related to providing the most efficient means of function in animal bodies.
Favorite extra curricular activities (undergraduate research, clubs, etc) and why:
I like to play guitar and write my own songs. It helps me get a release from the stress that school can sometimes bring.
Secret Weapon for Success:
I study with friends, to make sure that I stay on task
Get to know your teachers. Not only will it help you in their specific class but, if you know a teacher well, they might let you know about different opportunities for research or work before other students.
