It has been a great kickoff to this summer! I will admit this week did start of a bit stressful since I found I needed to get IRB approval for my research which was nowhere in my plans. It surprised me to see how fast the first week went by and I already feel overwhelmed to see what is due in so little time. But I got this! I believe in myself. What I look forward as an SROP participant is to actually see myself in a professional field with other colleagues presenting in the symposium on August 7. I am super excited to see my poster board. As of now I am happy that I am almost complete with my proposal that’s due tomorrow, I know this proposal will guide me to the rest of the assignments that are due.
