  • Profile Question 1
    What is best about being a scientist?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    Science is great in that you can ask questions, design ways to answer those questions. The best part of being a scientist is when a series of questions is answered and you get to tell a cool story about what you learned.

  • Profile Question 2
    When and why did you decide to go into a science career?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
    I began school as a nursing student, but when I took Human Anatomy and Physiology I realized that I loved biology, rather than taking care of people, I wanted to discover cool things about living things.

  • Profile Question 3
    Can you describe your attitude toward science when you were in high school?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    I loved science in high school. I took Biology II as a senior elective because I loved it so much. That class was cool because half of it was Zoology and half was Botany. I learned some really great things in that class, and my teach was pretty amazing too!
