Why did you choose your major?
I just remember being about 11 years old, and asking my mom for a microscope because of my interest in the things we can’t see. I chose the major I did because for as long as I can remember I have been curious in hot topics in the biomedical field such as stem Cell research and CRISPR Genome Editing. I knew for about 7 years now that I wanted to pursue science and earn a Ph.D. I’m happy I finally get to pursue that.
What is one activity, club, sport or hobby that you did in high school that you’d like to continue with at Rowan? (Or a new one you’d like to try?)
In high school I did computer club where I learned about another huge interest of mine: cyber security. So I’ll probably join Cyber Security Club. I also intended on joining the Chabad Jewish Student Association.
I chose Rowan because the graduation rate was better than other schools I previously looked at, I also love how the university is a very STEM based school. Because my intention is to earn a Ph.D., I wanted to attend a university that offered graduate programs and Rowan just seemed like the perfect fit for me.
Why did you choose a university that is relatively close to home?
Choosing Rowan did not have much to do with location. I was looking at schools out of state, but chose Rowan because of the great reputation they had.
What are a few things you are looking forward to next year at Rowan?
I am looking forward to learning more about my passion and progressing in the field of STEM.
