About me: I come from the San Juan Islands. This archipelago has been my home my entire life. I have walked every trail and seen every corner of the island. My next step is to do the same in Seattle. I am excited to be a part of the Honors Program at the University of Washington in this big city. I am intending to study Honors biochemistry and minor in dance, or possibly major in dance. I am a current member of HCASB, ETCH, and AED, which are all pre-med affiliated organization's. I am also working as an undergraduate researcher in the Vaughan Lab in the Department of Chemistry.
