Josiah's Story

My passion is biology. I have a deep passion for biology because I love to do experiments and test things out. My passion began with an egg experiment which entailed putting eggs in different solutions (sucrose, vinegar and water). There was an increase, decrease and no change in mass for the respective eggs. I was fascinated because the texture, shell and other qualities changed. Biology is interesting because it shows how all forms of life vary because of their genetic makeup. You can change one small variable and get a different result. Biology enables you to explore the unknown. There are species that were literally created by man. I'm passionate about learning more about biology and using what I learn to help humanity. I am currently in pre-advanced placement biology and taking the class only makes me relish biology more. Attending Brown University will help me pursue my passion in biology because I would be able to take a biology course from a prestigious institution and learn from the top professors.

A Note from Ms. Curry, Josiah's Teacher

Josiah has a passion for learning. As his Biology teacher, I have witnessed Josiah's passion for Biology in particular. Josiah explores his passion in class by pushing his learning - he participates every day, asks follow up questions to the information we are learning, and does additional research at home. Josiah loves participating in the laboratories we complete in class. I can rely on him to help in the lab, helping other students complete the lab and understand the material. Being exposed to the prestigious Brown University for a summer will only continue his love for education. Josiah will thrive when surrounded with collegiate minds.

I had an interest in biology in high school but started really late. Once I got to college I couldn't catch up and keep up. Hoping your interest and participation in programs like this give you the foundation necessary to achieve you dreams.
