Holistically the entire program really opened my eyes and showed me my capabilities as a student researcher and what I was able to do because I felt like when I was coming into the program I had doubts and fears. I was worried about what the atmosphere would be like and that the culture would be different and whether or not I would be able to adapt. But once I reached the end of the program I looked back on everything and I realized what I can accomplish over the summer and it is a very fulfilling experience. ”
