“I have always loved science and I knew since starting college, I wanted to make science a part of my profession. During my time in completing both my associate and bachelor’s degrees, I learned a lot about the scientific field. But most interesting and eye-opening, I was taught that my major could result in many different career paths.
“I love having options to utilize my degree in the way I believe is right for me. Different career paths with my degree included me to go into research, work in a scientific business setting, or even choosing to pursue a career into teaching/education. This major has shown me the possibilities I can take with the knowledge I have gained over the past four years. My undergraduate career taught me to be open-minded about the possibilities that are before me. This major has brought opportunities that I didn’t believe would be possible. It enabled me to grow and learn, and has resulted in me finding the field that I love.
“Currently I am taking part in a fellowship at the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, conducting research in pharmaceutical analysis with the focus on alcohol-use disorder. Also, I am planning to work towards a master’s degree in the near future and to pursue a full-time profession. Completing my bachelor’s degree is just the beginning and I am looking forward to what’s next in store for my future.”
