How can the Research Program inspire a career?

Who would’ve thought that both my research projects in high school would eventually lead me to creating my own dual major and procuring a fantastic job opportunity abroad?

Five years ago, as a sophomore at FSHA, I was absolutely set on pursuing a science degree in college on a pre-medical track and that was that. I knew that my goal was to be a doctor and that biology was the only way to go. Little did I know, that would change.
The Junior Research Project (JRP) and the Senior Research Project (SRP) were both pivotal points in my academic career but I didn’t know it at the time. When I started the process of the JRP, I’m not going to lie, it was tough. I wasn’t the most social justice oriented 16-year-old, and it was a steep climb for me to find a research topic that was relevant and interesting to me without being overly simplistic or vague.
