Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
In high school, science was never really my passion. I excelled at it, took multiple honors and AP courses in it throughout high school, and I thought it was a neat subject (along with math), but it just couldn't compare to my interest in music. My favorite parts of the school day were playing in band, singing in choir, and being a drum major in marching band after school. I loved performing and presenting my emotions as only music can do. When it came time for college applications, I really had a tough time deciding a major: biology or music? In the end, I decided that although I liked the performance of music, I found the day-to-day life of a musician kind of tedious and boring, and I just didn't think I had the skill to make it as a performer. If I chose science and research instead, I would have more variability in my day and I would enjoy going to work a lot more (so that it might not even feel like work). Music is still a part of my life (I DID end up completing a minor in music performance!), and it is now one of my hobby passions, but I am much more successful as a scientist than I think I would have been as a musician.
