Educating smart girls go to learn.

About me...Check back soon.  Andrea will be heading back to school in September!
Where I go to college: Arizona State University
My Major: English & Biochemistry
My year in college: Junior
My dreams for my future: I want to be a doctor - either a surgical oncologist or neurologist.
My plans on getting there: I'm taking my MCAT's in august and applying to medical school next year. Until then I'm taking tons of science classes and getting as much experience as I can by doing research in a Biochemistry Lab and volunteering at the hospital
My favorite things to do: I love playing the piano, cartooning and going dancing - especially historical dance with We Make History, a local re-enactors group. Other than that I really enjoy judging and coaching at speech and debate tournaments as well as photography : I just bought a digital camera so I'm spending a lot of time learning how to take great pictures. I also love reading and writing poetry and short stories.
My favorite books: The unbearable lightness of Being, 1984, Slapstick and Molly Sweeney (a play)
My favorite thing about me: My tenacity and creativity - When I'm  motivated to make something happen I can usually come up with creative ways to solve the road blocks I encounter on the way to reaching my goal.
Advice for girls: Don't let anyone tell you that you can't achieve something or throw your limitations in your face. There is always a way to achieve your goals - even if you have to adjust your approach or do off-the-wall things just to get your foot in the door.
