I am a scientist and current student looking for new experiences and opportunities to help me toward my goal of pursuing a career in medicine!

During my free time, I love to...

  1. explore LA and find new foods to post on my food blog, @Bae_Bites on Instagram!
  2. swim in the ocean
  3. dance
  4. run or go to the gym
  5. cook for my friends

Why Biology?

I originally came to LMU as a psychology major, however I quickly found myself wanting to go into biology. I love how biology is universal and is constantly advancing and building upon itself. I strive to one day be able to make my own contribution to the field!

Why Mathematics?

From an early age I always loved math. I like how structured and analytical it is most of the time, and I love the feeling I get after conquering a tough problem!

My homework partner, Fatima, and I helped each other via text and FaceTime when working on this assignment. We discussed what types of pages were required and how to upload our journal entries correctly.

I also used BIOL388/S19:Week 1 for help with using wiki syntax. Dr. Dahlquist and Dr. Fitzpatrick helped guide me through their lessons in class and by the detailed instructions they created for this assignment.

Except for what is noted above, this individual journal entry was completed by me and not copied from another source. Angela C Abarquez (talk) 23:41, 23 January 2019 (PST)
