After devouring some turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and topping it all off with fancy desserts, I bet the Thanksgiving break was awesome. I won’t be surprised to see some of us undo our deeds at the gym over the next couple of days. Anyway, as I was cleaning my room over the break, I came[…]

Summertime Networking

Although summer is a great time to rest and relax, it's also a chance to network with professionals in fields you're interested in going into. I love meeting new people and getting to learn about their backgrounds and experiences. I am still on schedule to intern this summer at a biomedical engineering company, but budget[…]

Winter Reads

I'm staying in Washington, DC and New York City over winter break and the weather hasn't been particularly great so far in the east coast.
