"I am going into Bachelor of Science Honours at Queen's University in Kingston.I am hoping to study Biochemistry and work towards a Master's degree and a PhD, however I do not know what exactly I want to pursue. I love science and the idea of changing the world on a monumental level through this passion is what drives me forward. There are endless careers in STEM and I am excited to discover what the world has to offer!" - Emma Davison
