Which SCI Team event are you most looking forward to and why?
I am most looking forward to Success in Science: Wellbeing! This is the first year that SCI Team will be hosting an event entirely focused on wellbeing-- an aspect of our lives that is often neglected amidst the pressures of school. I am excited for students to learn more about resources they can take advantage of to improve their mental and physical health.

If you could only give one piece of advice to any undergraduate student, what would it be?
Dedicate time each week to something you are passionate about-- that's not related to school. If you ever feel lost or burnt-out, don't hesistate to turn to a family member or a friend for help. Chances are, you're not the only one struggling to maintain a balance.
