"I have always loved to learn new and interesting things! In this next year, my research along with the mentoring of Dr. Garvin will teach me elements of accounting that I know I wouldn't get sitting in a classroom. I couldn't pass up an opportunity to do research at the University of Florida. While conducting my research, I will be able to really dive into my major and see how all the gears work."
