ASE/BBS 2020

“I had the ability to explore scientific fields online, through my sessions regarding epidemics and humankind, the immune system and cancer, and contagion and the ontological conception of disease. I began to realize my motivation emanates from the ability to grasp challenging ideas, question them, and develop a solution to the specific topic.”

I was able to continue my passion regarding science through a Yale-led undergraduate project called The Personality Project. Reaching broad ranges of individuals from across the globe and expressing various identities through my artwork was exhilarating. I never knew I could combine such vastly different concepts into a singular project that could change the perception of neuropsychology and personality. From this project, I knew I wanted to continue pursuing interdisciplinary research opportunities throughout college and beyond.
