  • Rockstars of Geology


For “Rockstars of Geology,” I close read student answers to questions about minority geologists and organize the data into easy-to-read graphs for Juk’s research. As a member of the Geology Club at UW-Whitewater, I also proofread and edit other members’ papers, grant proposals, et cetera. This job allows me to read and be involved in a whole slew of Juk’s projects. When I’m not working or at school, I love paddle boarding when the weather permits and reading which led me to the undergraduate majors I will be graduating with in May 2024. I also spend a lot of time with my border collie, Seger, and visiting my seven siblings who are scattered throughout the Midwest.
