In His Words: How did you get where you are today? “Being a scientist is all about asking good questions. SNU helped me on my academic journey in the classroom and laboratory by teaching me how to ask such questions. Additionally, the support of a Christ-centered community was vital in keeping me aware of even greater questions—spiritual questions—that shape my life to this day. Finally, the small class size in the Biology - Chemistry major gave me ample opportunity to get to know my professors on a personal level. We were always told, ‘If you can do well in our program, then you can do well anywhere.’ I have come to know that this is true.”
