Hi, Terri!

Last summer I began working as a clinical research intern at Eastern Maine Medical Center. While the position was unpaid last year, I am happy to say that I have been invited back to work a full-time, paid position this summer.

In the meantime, I’ve decided to pick up a double major in psychology at University of Rochester. I took 22 credits last semester and worked as a research assistant in the psychology department. This semester is my second working as a teaching assistant for the spring course, Principles of Biology II. I’m also Business Manager and Fundraising Chair of Women’s Club Basketball.

The Maine Seacoast Mission is the most supportive scholarship organization I am involved with, offering the most generous outside scholarship I received. Without this help, I would be struggling much more to pay for my undergraduate education.

Many thanks to the Mission!
