Catalyst Reports: Dreams of a Young Scientist

Written by Rose Nguyen

Each moment that we’re spending in college is truly shaping us. As we are being bombarded with classes, obligations and social lives, we discover a little bit more about ourselves. In my short 19 years of being alive, I’ve found that the most trying times are also the most didactic.

It is important to have dreams and goals, whether the plan is for tomorrow tonight or for 5 years from now. I am absolutely fascinated by neuroscience—the field tells us so much about who we are yet there is so much more to discover. I wanted to know what other goals my peers around me had. So CNS, what are your dreams?
