Hello everyone!

My name is Emily and I graduated from University with an Honours Bachelor of Science last year! My dream is to attend graduate school to complete a Master's degree next year and then a PhD after that. I am fascinated by human health, and thoroughly enjoyed the classes I took in nutrition, physiology, pathology, metabolism, toxicology, endocrinology, and more. I discovered my passion for research in my fourth year of university when i completed two independent research projects. One was an in vitro nutritional intervention study with MCF-7 breast cancer cells and the other was a literature review on cancer cachexia. I thoroughly enjoyed the researching and writing process involved in these courses. I really excelled at both of these courses, and found them to be extremely valuable learning experiences.

I paid for my whole education myself, and despite having to work two jobs during my four years that combined equaled a full time job in addition to full time classes, volunteer work and research, I finished my degree on time, albeit with a lot of debt. I don't qualify for government student loans because they base it on your parents income, even though they were unable to help me with any costs, so I had to get a line of credit, which I had to pay interest on while in school. I am working full time now to pay off my loans and save for grad school but I feel that it will take years before I can save up enough :(

Please help me to realize my dream! Your generosity is so greatly appreciated. I feel that I could make such a difference in the world if only I had the resources. Thank you so much in advance.

<3 Emily
