My mentor, Dr. Lori Snyder, has inspired me to focus on the good in life. Together we have traveled to rural communities in Costa Rica creating and assisting with service learning projects to benefit said communities. She constantly wants to help these community members, doing whatever is in her power to make their lives better. This has inspired me to do the same! I equally enjoy working with these communities. Kids in these communities have come up to us and said that they want to be scientists just like Dr. Snyder and myself!
With so much negativity in the world today, it’s refreshing to see how Dr. Lori Snyder takes everything and puts a positive spin on it.
