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.
W&J encourages students to get out of their comfort zone and try something they only dreamed of doing.
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.
All of the science courses I have taken so far have given me more laboratory experience than some of my fellow interns. I also believe that my Magellan to Costa Rica last summer helped me get my internship.
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.
