Favorite Aspect of Biology

My favorite aspect of biology is learning about the human body and the intricacy of our systems. It is fascinating to gain an understanding of the complexity of our body's efforts to maintain homeostasis. I am highly interested in immunology and the ability to fight pathogens, it is like peering into a chess match at the microscopic level.

Favorite Aspect of Mathematics

My favorite aspect of Mathematics is challenging myself to solve a problem and really engaging critical thinking. I enjoy math because it forces me to show perseverance and work through a complicated problem by thinking one step at a time.
