Thanks to the broad range of classes I’ve taken at W&J, I felt like I was greatly prepared to embark on this trip. I believe this trip has helped guide me by pointing me toward a field I might be interested in.
Dr. Kuo was adamant that being a well-rounded individual with experience in many fields and the ability to problem solve would be critical for our future. She was right.
The most surreal part of this experience is that down the road, some of the research I have done could possibly lead to treatments for people that are affected by these bacteria, which is mainly people with cystic fibrosis.
I could go on and on about connections I made with staff and my peers through student activities and groups. Just the constant support I had through them gave me a family there even though my family was four hours away.
Without the extra push from W&J, I would not have prioritized an internship as highly as I did. This allowed me to step outside my comfort zone and have great experience. I know I’m working toward what I want to do.
