“Earning this award is a formal recognition of my work to not just succeed but excel in my field. I am beyond grateful as it reassures me that I have left a mark on this program and university. I am extremely proud of the work I have done and know that I am on the right track towards a challenging yet rewarding and fulfilling career. I have honed my leadership skills in several student organizations, performed research and worked as a teaching assistant, while pursuing my passion for music with the Carolina Band and University Band.

The biomedical engineering program specifically has prepared me for anything with its rigorous curriculum and hands-on approach to learning. I would like to give a special thanks to Dr. [Melissa] Moss and her two Ph.D. candidates, Brittany Watson and Jane Lim, for providing a stimulating and supportive lab environment. Also, thank you to Dr. [Esmaiel] Jabbari and Dr. [Silke] Henrich for trusting in my knowledge and allowing me to work as a teaching assistant. I am immensely grateful for this university, and I would not trade any of my experiences here for the world.”

“Winning the SCSPE award for my academics lets me know that my professors and the biomedical engineering faculty recognize my achievements and support me in my pursuit to hold myself to the highest standard. It also reassures me that sometimes all I can do is my best, and my best is enough.

I’ve had amazing professors in the program. I can genuinely say that I always felt that they wanted every student to succeed as long as they put in the effort required to get there. They may not realize it, but they’ve been some of my strongest motivators to continue working hard, knowing that they believe in me. I’ve also had some great teaching assistants who accommodated me throughout the last year, while working full-time and finishing my undergraduate degree. They’ve allowed me to pursue not only educational goals but also personal goals, such as starting a career and working to buy a home.”
