Through these past weeks, I have discovered myself both personally and professionally. Having the opportunity to work at a prestigious lab as my first research opportunity has helped me grow in remarkable ways. I have learned a lot about the research world, and have gained a newfound respect for the dedication that researchers go through trying to solve some of the world’s most intricate problems. I have learned to be not only analytical but also detail-oriented, focusing on each and every procedure in order to produce precise results that can benefit the lab as a whole. Coming to lab everyday and seeing everyone else give it their all has proven to me the importance behind this work, and inspired me to give it my all each and every day. There is no better feeling than having the resources for discovery, and the opportunity to achieve it.
