“...thoroughly impressed with how much I already knew”
Kimberly Perez, Class of 2013
Hometown: Brownsville, Texas
Internship: The BIO-5 Institute that paired Kimberly with an entomology lab at the University of Arizona.
“During this internship, I had hands-on experience in the lab, side by side with masters, post-doctorates, and other fellow undergraduates. I also got to sit in on laboratory meetings and present at a conference sponsored by the university. This experience definitely helped me determine if I would like to pursue a career in research. From the very first day of my internship, I was able to jump into the work and understand the topics and instructions given because of the great preparation provided by my professors. The department I worked with were thoroughly impressed with how much I already knew.”
