Molly Jacobson, from Merrimack, New Hampshire, graduated summa cum laude from the University of New Hampshire in 2017. A wildlife and conservation biology major, she conducted research under the mentorship of Dr. Sandra Rehan, which greatly influenced the work she does today. As an undergraduate, Molly was a member of the University Honors Program, the Hamel Scholar Program and both the Xi Sigma Pi National Forestry Honors Society and Phi Sigma Biological Honor Society. She received a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF), through which she conducted research on the national bumble bee decline. After graduation, Molly published her research in Biological Conservation and presented it at the Entomological Society of America national conference. She plans to attend graduate school starting in the fall of 2019. She hopes to make a difference in the world through hands-on work in the field and outreach in the forms of photography, writing, and education. Molly wrote her commentary for Inquiry as a way to “inspire others to explore their own passions, and to learn about themselves and where they want the paths of their lives to take them.”
