Our memories essentially make us who we are - the thought of losing them devastated me and inspired me to want to learn more about the brain.

I have always been interested in learning about neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Alzheimer's disease. Our memories essentially make us who we are - the thought of losing them devastated me and inspired me to want to learn more about the brain. Hopefully, I will be there when researchers discover a cure.

The highlight of my studies so far would be the opportunity to participate in clubs and programs outside of classes. In neuroscience we not only get to learn science content, but also about the brain research that is currently happening. Don't stress too much if you're still not sure what you want to do by the end of high school. The Bachelor of Science provides great flexibility and gives you chance to discover a breadth of all the sciences available.

For a few weeks at the end of 2016, April was a presenter in the Science Delivery Program.
