    When and why did you decide to go into a science career?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    Science was always fun. It was challenging and I wanted to learn new things. It allowed me to think analytically but be creative as well. Thinking out of the box is always helpful. Science is hard but worth the headaches.
