Favorite Aspect of Biology and Math

  • My favorite aspect of biology is the study of human anatomy, since I have always found the study of the structure and functions of the human body to be truly fascinating and hope to further my understanding by attending medical school in the future.
  • My favorite aspect of math is the problem solving skills it provides you with, which can easily apply to other areas of study.
