Hey! My name is Teresa and I'm a graduate from Archbishop Macdonald High School in Edmonton, Alberta. I've always considered myself an explorer. As curiosity is the primary driving force in me, it pushes me to explore many aspects in my life including those of the science, humanities, arts, and spiritual fields. By joining iGEM, I hope to be able to research synthetic biology- a new field of science that has always peaked my interest. With the research the experiment entails, not only will I be able to explore synthetic biology, but I will also get a taste of the exploration behind being an astronaut.
An ultimate goal in my life (like many other explorers) is to leave behind a footprint in humanity.
