Camille's Story

My passion is biology. My passion for biology started with my fascination for the aquatic and marine life within the oceans. I have always been inspired by science and math so at first I wanted to be a scientist and study life within the ocean, and if I could not do that I would have studied something else with a similar goal set. Ultimately my love for biology came from the ocean, moreover the unknown aspects that make life so unique. Attending Centenary Summer Scholars will help me pursue my passion for biology because it will give me classes about biology and will also give me a chance to find out what aspects create a successful biologist. It will also help with my social and communication skills with my peers.

A Note from Ms. Edens, Camille's Mentor

Camille is an excellent candidate for Centenary Scholars because she loves biology and she has a very positive attitude. In the class I teach with her, she is one of the top two students. As I'm teaching biology, she just gets the topics immediately. She is always very respectful of her peers and teachers, and always eager for a new opportunity to learn. Camille is very passionate about biology. About two weeks ago, I showed Camille a coloring biology textbook that I had recently bought and she was as excited about reading it as I was. As she was flipping through the book, Camille began telling me how interested she is in learning about marine biology. Camille takes any chance she gets to pursue her passion for biology (asks me questions, shows interest in new topics).
