"UNH has made me become confident. I now know what I want to do for a career."


Why did you choose UNH?
The international population at UNH isn’t huge, so I knew I wouldn’t group up with my international people and never move around. I definitely wanted to explore and meet new people.

What are your plans after graduation?
Graduate school (PhD), where I want to integrate genetic techniques for immunotherapy 
Tell us about your experience doing research abroad in Japan.
Conducting research in Japan helped me figure out what I want to do in the future, so now I’m pursuing grad school. I made a lot of friends, and I definitely gained more than one mentor while I was in Japan. It was an amazing opportunity.
What do you like the most about the UNH campus?
I love the distinct season changes! It’s not the city. There are enough people to keep me happy, but it’s not too crowded.
