For the 2018-2019 school year, I have decided to continue taking an Undergraduate Research course as an elective. In this particular course, I have gotten the opportunity to teach basic laboratory methods, protocols and experiments to a first time research student majoring in Biology. I also hold membership in Beta Kappa Chi Honor Society, Beta Beta Beta Biological Honor Society and The National Institute of Science on the campus of Jarvis Christian College.

I am also a collegiate bowler for Jarvis Christian College, and a part of UTHealth Pre-Health Academy.
