Welcome to my life as a biologist! Again, my name is Quartney Ross. I am from Fayetteville, North Carolina now residing in Woodbridge, Virginia. I am a graduating senior, studying Biology with a Neuroscience concentration at the illustrious Winston-Salem State University. I chose to take on Biology because I knew after my college career, there would be never-ending opportunities. I am currently thinking about teaching. It is a short term goal of mine. Other goals are to take on a Masters of Public Health and to pursue an occupation as an Environmental Protection Agent. You can have anything in this world, as long as you have hard-work and dedication.
My time spent at Winston Salem State University has been filled with ups and downs. Good times and bad times, but they were all for the good because I turned them into lessons. The biology department has grown me on several different levels. I have learned the importance of class participation and building relationships with professors. Breaking those barriers made it easier to learn, as well as, making the process a little easier. Having relationships with my professors allowed me to go in their offices with ease to ask them questions about any material I was confused about and it also gave them room to push me to my fullest potential. I have went from writing terrible lab reports to now interpreting tough scientific articles. I will never forget going to Dr. Dance's office, along with a classmate, crying to her how I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND A PARTICULAR PAPER. I got it now! Take it word by word, sentence by sentence. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
