What UROP program were you a part of?  

Traditional UROP as a Freshman, Peer Advisor/ Peer facilitator, Summer - Biomedical & Life Sciences Summer Fellowship.

What made you choose UROP?

I knew coming into school that I wanted to participate in research, and had heard great things about UROP from other students. I didn't know anything about participating in research and appreciated the guidance that UROP provided in finding a project, and understanding how the research process works.

What do you think you have learned from your UROP experience?

I learned the importance of research and how integral every piece of information gained is to understanding and improving the world we live in. I learned that I appreciate the detail-oriented research process.

What is the extent to which you have kept in contact with your Research Mentor?

We have checked in with each other over the years and she asks for updates about my life.

Where are you in your professional journey?

I am in my second year of medical school at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.

What advice would you give to a current UROP student?

Take advantage of every opportunity.

Is there any other advice you would like to impart to current or future UROP students?

Trust yourself and your abilities!
