About Me
Hi guys. I'm Rachel, a 20 year old final-year Biomedical Science Student at Abertay University in Dundee. I have attempted to create a GYG multiple times but I am probably the worlds worst procrastinator and what starts out as motivation soon dies down after the stress kicks in. I have the attention span of a 5 year-old so I always fall into the habit of studying for 5 mins and then watching Netflix for hours. I'm now in my final most important year so I need to kick my butt into gear.
My Course
I started 4th year in September, so most of my assessments are out the way but I'll post updates as more come up and as my honors project starts. I am a proud woman in STEM and last year did a Hospital Placement working in the Newborn Screening Laboratory in Scotland. I have also applied for 4 Masters courses for next year. I'm always looking to motivate other young people in STEM so happy to answer any questions that may come your way. I am doing my honors project this year on Social Media and IVF "Add-Ons". I'll give more detail on my modules and projects as I post.
Wish Me Luck!
