There’s a freedom that comes with working in science. I had really great teachers in high school and college who inspired me to ask questions about the world around me. Now I can ask questions that interest me and design my own research to find answers. I chose Gerstner Sloan Kettering for graduate school because it has a unique program that I believed was the best fit for me. This is a small program, so you know everyone and aren’t just a number. When it comes to choosing a PhD program, you need to follow your heart and go where you believe you will have the most success. And New York City is never boring!
