That's Eugenia being all teacher-like....Look at the awe on my face! (i'm the blonde, fyi)


I would first like to introduce myself:
I'm Amy! I attend the University of MD-College Park, and I'm also affiliated with College Park Scholars-Earth, Life, and Time. Soon, I'll be a sophomore (yay!) and I'll get to participate in the Scholars practicum, which is basically an internship that somehow relates to science. As to my future plans, I would love to become a doctor: yes, I want to spend the rest of my young life in school!

The next step!
Ok, the only reason I made this site is for my Scholars class, taught by the two greatest professors ever: Dr. Thomas Holtz and Dr. John Merck!!!
 
At the end of our sophomore year, College Park Scholars participates in an Academic Showcase. That means I'll have to do that next year! (Yikes!) But, meanwhile, all the freshmen had to go to their showcase and interview three ELTers (that's scholar-talk for Earth, Life, and Time).
