Personal Summary
I am currently a graduate of University of Houston main campus. I majored in biochemistry and minored in Chemistry and I graduated in the spring of 2019. I have obtained the skills needed for a laboratory setting through the many classes, labs, and research programs at the University of Houston. Some of the main skills that I have acquired include leadership and teamwork in a lab setting and data analysis. I am hoping to continue using these skills in graduate school and in future laboratories.
