Year at UW: Fourth
About me: Hi, I'm Annie! I'm a fourth generation Husky in my senior year at UW majoring in neurobiology and planning on applying to medical school. I'm from a small town so feel free to ask me about adjusting to city life or what it's like going to such a big school! I've done two study abroads in Africa through the Honors program, am pursuing a triple minor in African Studies, Bioethics, and Global Health, do genetics research, and spend a lot of time working with Seattle homeless populations through the student group E.T.C.H. (Education Transforming Community Health) and the U District's young adult shelter, ROOTS. Feel free to ask me about any of the above! I'd be happy to give you advice on how to handle premed coursework, mixing natural and social sciences, study abroad, or getting started volunteering with homeless folks! I was in honors housing and have already completed almost all of my honors coursework, so I can give you any input you'd like on honors-specific topics. I would love to talk over email, show you around, or just chat over a cup of coffee at Café Allegro!
