Being comfortable learning from mistakes
"Labs – they were always my favorite— getting out into the field and jungle to explore Guam was helpful in building my relationship with the outdoors. Experience-wise, college taught me that mistakes are part of the journey, and being comfortable to make mistakes and acknowledge them is important to growing. As graduation approaches, it reminds me of how being a first-generation graduate had its challenges, but once I overcame them, it unlocked more opportunities for myself and ways to help and mentor others."

Science is "fun and cool"
Although recent, a highlight of my time at UOG was the day of our capstone presentations. It was a full day of hearing about the great experiments and research that my classmates have done throughout the semester. Seeing and hearing everyone light up with joy when they presented their research reminded me how fun and cool science is, especially research! Our hypotheses may have been wrong, but we learned something new which is what science and research are all about.
