Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
I think one of the hardest parts about being a scientist is having to deal with "failure" on a daily basis. Conducting experiments is humbling because you put so much of your time, effort, and energy into an experiment and you may still have negative results. However, I like how learned to cope with the negative results and work through it. I learned to continually believe in myself and to be okay changing directions when it looked like my hypothesis was wrong.
