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.
My W&J education has encouraged me to travel and experience cultures that are different from what I know. My independent research gives me the opportunity to get experience studying something that I will have a career in in the future.
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 can’t think of one school that provides students with the funds to complete an independent project or internship abroad. The Franklin Magellan Award allowed me to pursue things that I had always hoped to do for a better future. It’s one of the reasons I chose to come to W&J.
I’ve learned to listen and communicate better with people as well as to be excited about experiencing and learning new things. Since I want to be a doctor, these are both very important skills as it’s what I will constantly be doing.
