"I just wanted to say that this program gave me a lot more than I expected. It's so awesome to be a young researcher and participate in a poster symposium. I was nervous about it at first, but I realized that I knew more than what I gave myself credit for. It's so cool! I'm just really excited about science, and especially research now." - student
