Participating in volunteer and outreach events will always be something that I am highly passionate about. This past week I had the opportunity to practice some glow in the dark designs on agar plates of a fluorescent strain of bacteria! These examples will be used at a Wisconsin Science Discovery exhibit this weekend. Drawing with bacteria is like drawing with clear water and a cue-tip, so please pardon my elementary cat and flower!
The fall of my junior year I visited UW-Madison as part of the BioSciences Opportunities Program. That is where I first experienced what UW had to offer and how incredibly well rounded the city and community of Madison is. This program played a crucial role in my selecting UW-Madison for graduate school, but also put me in an advantageous position to be selected for a diversity based fellowship! If you're interested in pursuing your graduate degree at one of the best research universities in the world, I high suggest you apply!
