How will Research Rookies help you further your academic and career goals?: Research Rookies has taught me how to how to work in a lab setting where I control the experiments instead of taking them from a book like is done in the classroom. This program has also added a unique and extremely valuable piece to add to my resume that will make me stick out to schools and possible employers.

In my free time I like to run, read, and see friends and family.
