After graduating from St. Olaf College on May 27th of this year, I will be attending Northwestern University this fall to pursue a Masters of Science in Analytics. I hope to work as a data scientist for a biotech company after matriculation from Northwestern in December 2019.  I remember very fondly all my CTY experiences, especially Genetics and Genomics at JHU in 2012! Much love to all my fellow CTY alumni.
