About me: Hi there! My name is Jessica, and I am a junior majoring in Bioengineering. I came to Honors because I was interested in meeting other people with similar passions that I do, no matter how quirky or awesome they may be. I've been there, done that, and jumped around from majors a few times, so if you're at all wondering what major (in the natural sciences) is best for you, I happen to know a bit about almost all of them so feel free to hit me up! I also love getting out there and doing research and volunteering outside of classes, so if you have questions about getting involved, feel free to ask. Both are definitely fun and enriching experiences to explore! Finally, I know trying to balance pre-med with other major coursework can be hard, so if you're at all interested I can offer insight as to what I'm doing, and hopefully we can make your experience all the better. Enjoy Honors because really there is no other way in the university to get a more unique experience in your coursework! :)
