Degree Program

  • Bachelor of Science – Biological Sciences: Molecular, Cellular and Developmental, North Carolina State University, 2021

I would like to thank the Chugach Heritage Foundation for all the help and support they have given me the past five years that I have been in college. I attended North Carolina State University with the goal of obtaining a degree in Biology. Now graduating with my B.S. in Molecular Biology, I am planning on pursuing my Ph.D. in Biochemistry with a focus on the development of plants in microgravity.

I cannot express how fortunate I am to have been given the opportunity to pursue my dream career goals with the assistance that the CHF community has given me. CHF has done an excellent job improving its community, and even from North Carolina, they have made me feel like a proud member of their community.
