Scholarship(s) Awarded: Dowdy Student Stores EC Scholars Award; Shultz-Bowling EC Scholars Award
Major/Intended Major: Biochemistry
I enrolled at ECU because it would help me achieve my long term goals.
The scholarship has given me the freedom to explore different majors that I would not have considered before. I am more active in campus activities and the student organization.
I work under Dr. Brett Keiper at the Biochemistry Department in the Brody School of Medicine. It is a unique and valuable opportunity to be able to work with someone of his caliber. Although I am just in the beginning stages of research, I gain knowledge and experience each day.
Through the EC scholars program, my fellow scholars and I met Steve Farber. He spoke about Extreme Leadership and how to exceed our own expectations.
I want to either pursue a Ph.D. in Biochemistry or enter Medical School after undergraduate studies.
I am the activities coordinator of the Rising Leaders Circle at ECU. The Rising Leaders Circle has hosted multiple wellness passport events and volunteer activities.
