In the long run, I would like to be a researcher for a major cosmetics company, like L’Oréal or Estée Lauder, because I’m passionate about using natural and organic products. There are so many toxic ingredients in our products that are extremely harmful to us and many people are unaware of it. Currently, I am a student at the College of Charleston, in Charleston, South Carolina. I’m majoring in physics and minoring in french business. After I graduate I will go to graduate school and I might try to get a doctorat. In order to achieve this, I need to have a good understanding of biology, physics and chemistry. Last semester I took a course on photonics, where I completed a research project in the lab. I became familiar with the use of a laser, a light sensor and PASCO software. My goal was to test the effectiveness of different types of sunscreens. This summer I will be doing research with a professor of biophysics. I will learn to conduct formal research, write an article explaining my research and present my research. To succeed in this job, I must know how to work in a laboratory, work well with others and be able to ask for or offer constructive feedback. I also have to be organized and precise with measurements. I would consider myself organized, because I hold a position in my sorority and have learned how to manage multiple projects and stay on top of my schoolwork. I am also sociable, because I have been a greeter at retail stores, where my job was to welcome the customer and form a bond with them. I would also say that I’m punctual, because I’m always five to ten minutes early for everything.
