I participated in a surfing learning event organized by the University’s Surf and Skim Club. It was the first time I had ever surfed. With the help of a surfing trainer, I successfully surfed in the sea after 30 minutes of training. It is an unforgettable experience.
The ABE Graduate Student Organization brought me a kind of sense of belonging. All ABE faculty, staff and students are family members. Additionally, the Biocomplexity Seminar group helped me widen my horizon.
Dr. Bin Gao was my advisor and he helped me a lot. He helped me find what I was interested in and we talked about it for further research.
I will be continuing my research as a Ph.D. student in ABE.
Definitely attend events the ABE department.
