What excites you about science?
What excites me about science is all the unanswered questions! Every day new hypotheses are being formulated, new research papers are published, and old ideas are disproven but we will never be able to answer them all. It is exciting to think that you can put in your 10,000 hours and become an expert in your field, but you will always continue to learn something new.
When did you discover you enjoyed learning about science?
I discovered that I enjoyed learning about science back in elementary school when I came across an introductory book about family trees, genetics, and evolution. I became interested in all the different factors that influenced people to be the way they are. From there, I noticed that I naturally gravitated towards learning about the interrelationship between humans and the environment.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
At the rate that science is advancing, you never know what jobs will still be around or what they might evolve into in 10 years. It is hard for me to say but I know I want to be in a position where I can help create a more sustainable community and help improve health equity locally and globally.
