I’ve been wanting to do this for some time now but my schedule has been crazy. Yes, I am that crazy that I decided to write this at 5 am because I just needed to go ahead and start the momentum of this long-overdue project that has been on my mind for so long.
I guess what I am trying to convey with this new blog post series is an element of truth. Almost an insider-look as to what college life has been like for others. How did they choose their major(s)? Is there any piece of advice they could share with the world? I have decided to interview my close friends first and later expand my network. I will get their feedback and I hope to share some words of advice that will motivate, inspire, and or uplift you.
For starters, I have decided to start with someone who has an undeniable love for all animals (even snakes I promise). She has a gift for creating the killer cat eyeliner look (and yet I’m still trying to master it). She can explain and go into detail about microorganisms for days (she lost me after one sentence—true story). This individual is my sister, Lupe Machuca.
On a late afternoon, I asked my sister if she would be willing to share with me advice that she had for those pursuing a Biology degree and what prospective students could look forward too.
Agee: Lupe, do you have any advice you could share for those pursuing a Biology degree?
Lupe: Well, you can’t just study overnight like in high school. When it comes to Biology, as your major, you better like science. You can’t “BS” science. I say, if Biology is going to help you get to your career aspirations stick with it. If not, change your major asap and stop wasting your time.
Agee: What is the best way to prepare for a Biology related class?
Lupe: Re-read and dissect every piece of information given. Understand how it works and why. You can’t just remember it; you have to understand it.
Agee: What can you say in regards to your college experience?
Lupe: I have had my good and bad experiences. The best memories have been hanging out with my true friends, having random night trips to the beach, and traveling to Kennesaw.
