"I originally wanted to do research to stand out from my fellow students when applying to veterinary school. However, I quickly became more and more fascinated by research. I have grown to love performing trials and building up a huge amount of data over a whole semester, analyzing that data, and then coming up with graphs and charts comparing the different variables used in the trial. I also have grown fond of using those science-based comparisons to confirm or deny a hypothesis and contribute to scientific knowledge of animal behavior."
