Hi, my name is Astrid and I am from Guatemala. Science and math have never really been my thing, and honestly, i like to think that it is because I’m left handed (people say left-handed people tend to be more right-brained, you can read more about us left-handed people HERE ). In addition, ever since my freshmen year of high school when I took Biology, and was taught absolutely nothing, I’ve always been very distant from science overall. I’m a very artistic person and I love creating new things, so I believe the reason I was interested in taking this course was because I’ve always been intrigued by how things naturally come to be. I find it extremely interesting to learn about the way things grow, change, and/or evolve, and I do want to become more aware of what science is and how impacts my life. I also think that taking this course will later help me be a part of conversations I usually feel uncomfortable in, when it comes to any science topics.
However, I do not plan on being a science major because I enjoy drawing and designing more than I enjoy science. I am a strong believer that you will always succeed as long as you do what you love. I’ll put it this way: Science is like cooking… and i hate cooking, but I do think everyone should at least know the basics in order to survive.
