Undergraduate Volunteer I
My name is Sara Galvis and I am a visiting scholar from Medellín, Colombia. As someone who was drawing pictures of "devices" that would do my chores for me when I was a little kid, I always knew I would choose a field related to science. This is why I chose Biomedical Engineering as my major, and now that I am in my senior year, I can confidently say that I made the right decision, because it has put me on a path that I know will help me make a positive impact in society and help as many people as I can. I believe the best way to do so is through research. Science must be something collaborative, and for me there is no greater example for that than a research lab. I am extremely grateful for the amazing learning opportunity I've been given here with the LABisambra family. In the future I want to keep working in the neuroscience field, learning as much as I can, finding new questions and creating solutions for them, and integrating all of this into community work.
