Personal Interests and Why I Chose My Major

Hobbies

In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV or movies or playing games with my close friends, and occasionally going out and doing something adventurous.

Favorite Aspect About Biology

I enjoy learning how the world around me works and am fascinated by how everything is so diverse and complex. It makes me wonder how all the pieces came together to create life.

Favorite Aspect About Mathematics

Math can be extremely difficult, but there is always an answer. It can be approached many ways and may take some double checking to identify what went wrong, but it is procedural and cannot give deceptive answers.
