Major: Public Health

I spent my most of childhood years in Woodburn, Oregon, and then I moved to Hood River, Oregon, where my family still currently resides. I chose to come to OSU because it has many opportunities to get experience, whether it is for work, research or volunteering. I am currently majoring in Biology. For my undergraduate research, I hope to study how the aging process of cells works and how different factors affect the aging process. I hope that some day I will become a dermatologist. My other option is to become a medical or wildlife researcher. What I like most about OSU so far are the resources that are provided to help me succeed, such as the Mole Hole!
