Zakiyyah's Story

My passion is forensic science. I was first introduced to forensic science through television shows such as "Bones" and "Law and Order". I came to the realization that forensic science could be a passion of mine because it combined my interest of science with criminology and the criminal justice system. A career involving criminology is something that always interested me but I did not necessarily want to be a police officer. I realized that there are many other ways to be involved in law enforcement that also combined my interest of science. Therefore, my passion for forensic science blossomed. Attending NSLC Forensic Science would help pursue my passion because it will give me an accurate representation of what is to like to work in the field. This will be a life changing experience because attending NSLC would allow me to network and meet professionals that can educate me.

A Note from Mr. Murray, Zakiyyah's Teacher

Zakiyyah loves to learn - she has an undying thirst for knowledge. Her intellectual engagement sets a standard for our high school - she cares deeply about the depth and quality of everything she does. Zakiyyah is first and foremost a scientist. She loves to solve problems, ask questions, and seek new perspectives on a problem. If she chooses to apply to college as a STEM major, the NSLC will serve as a strong foundation and irreplaceable experience for her future life and career.
