I am a Sophomore at the University if Michigan and I am undecided on my major. I went to Port Huron Northern High School and took many math classes and also took some community college math courses. Math was my favorite subject in high school, especially calculus.

Hey, For those who do not know me (all of you), I am a Junior at the University of Michigan. I'm currently trying to complete a major in Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience which sounds very impressive but is just a fancy name for a type of psych major. I'm also a pre-medical student which means I get to take a whole boat-load of Chemistry courses. Fun. So, I like English Literature. I know it's a nerdy type of interest but it's one of the few classes I'm able to understand right off the back (the other, strangely, is biology). Don't ask me why. I don't know. Though it may have something to do with my passion for reading, which has grown ever since I came to college and no longer had a television. I'm also a pretty decent writer and if medicine doesn't work out I plan on becoming a shepherd. I'll spend my free time writing fiction (while I watch my sheep). My high-school advisor did tell me to have a back up plan. Oh yeah, I grew up in Saudi Arabia. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I am junior at Michigan from a town called Okemos in Michigan as well. School wise, I graduated from Okemos high school where my favorite subjects were chemistry and history. Now I am majoring in Earth Environmental Science with a minor in biochemistry and German, and I hope one day to make urban agriculture in Detroit and the rest of America a viable career for those without access to healthy food. Outside of school I enjoy staying active through a variety of sports, especially soccer or basketball, but I also enjoy swimming and playing water polo. If I'm not active I relax on my front porch.
