How has GGC helped prepare you for where you are today?
GGC helped me develop a strong foundation in chemistry and research through its excellent curriculum and undergraduate research (STEC) courses, respectively. My chemistry professors were approachable and eager to share their extensive academia and industry insights, which helped me understand my career options. I am capable of adapting to any research effort thanks my experiences at GGC.
Favorite memory about GGC:
My favorite memory while at GGC falls within my experience as a research assistant to Dr. Joshua Morris. Dr. Morris' devotion to my personal development and his tireless help in preparing me for graduate school at Georgia Tech encompass my favorite memories. Dr. Morris and I continue to be close friends, and I believe other students can expect similar experiences for themselves.
