Presentation Title

"Advice From Someone Who’s Been There"

Presentation Summary

I was thirteen years old, and very new to the scientific world, when I won Scifest@CIT. Since then, I’ve had more than a few adventures and lessons learned. That said, there are a few things I wish I had been told that day in April 2015 - here they are. I’d like to tell you my story so far, and the things I learned from each chapter.
