My Favorite Aspect of Biology

  • My favorite aspect of biology has to be the evolution of mammals from fish many years ago, to reptiles, then apes, and so on. I also really enjoy how resilient mammals are and how we as humans have been able to adapt to all sorts of different situations ranging from rampant disease to being able to live in almost all climates on the earth

My Favorite Aspect of Computer Science

  • Im not sure that I have a favorite aspect of computer science or computers in general, but I thoroughly do appreciate the gift that computers are to people of my generation because they have allowed for the advancement of almost every field of education, academia, and technology in the world
