Maggie is a second year student at the University of Washington Bothell seeking an undergraduate degree in biology. She hopes to pursue graduate school in microbiology or immunology for a career in disease research. In early fall 2013 she participated in an exploration seminar in Costa Rica where they looked at the natural and cultural history of Costa Rica by studying the four main ecological regions: valley, mountains, coast, and rainforest. For this program she was a recipient of the GO! scholarship as well as the UWB Study Abroad Scholarship. One of her fondest memories was following a troop of Howler monkeys for a morning and studying their behavior, saying she felt like she “walked straight out of a National Geographic™ magazine.” This enriching experience is what brought her to the position as a Study Abroad Advisor, as she wishes to pass on her study abroad knowledge and encourage others to have their own adventures.
