My name is Faduma Osman, and I am a 1st generation college student here at NC State majoring in Biomedical Engineering. My favorite subjects are science and math. I love photography, art, sports, and music. When I graduate, I hope to make a difference in the medical field by innovating medical technology. I also enjoy learning about the life sciences and applying what I learn to real-life situations. My research goals are learning more about the tools and techniques used in research, such as animal models and the ethics behind them and seeing the experiment cycle from start to finish. Being a 1st year undergraduate, this is my first exposure to research in a specific field, and I have already learned a lot about the research world.
