Physics major, Logic and Reasoning and Astronomy minors

I am a freshman Physics major and plan on getting minors in both Logic and Reasoning, and Astronomy. Ever since I was really young, I have loved science. I have always held a passion for various scientific subject matters, but in 4thgrade I found a used book on astronomy at my elementary school’s book swap. When I discovered what astronomy had to offer, I quickly decided that this was what I wanted to study. I enjoy working at the planetarium because it gives me the opportunity to both teach and learn, and I am excited to share my love of astronomy. I want to provide an opportunity for everyone to see how beautiful the night sky can be, and to inspire an appreciation of the pursuit of knowledge. In my free time, I love to read and I pick up books wherever I go. I also enjoy Irish dance. I have competed since I was 8 and I have danced all over the country.
