Meet our NSCS Scholar of the Week, Beatriz Reyes! Beatriz is a student at Florida Atlantic University where she majors in neuroscience and behavior.
As a member of NSCS, Beatriz’s favorite experience is witnessing other NSCS members give back to the community and working as a team. Beatriz said, “I like to see how [NSCS FAU chapter members] engage and come up with different ideas to help. Additionally, NSCS always encourages team work, which proves that if we all work together toward the same goal we can achieve it. This has provided me with leadership skills such as communicating effectively, listening to and respecting other people’s opinions, and taking responsibility.”
Honoring the NSCS pillars of scholarship and leadership, Beatriz has plans on attending medical school in the future and leads FAU’s NSCS chapter as president. “It has always been my goal to strengthen my leadership skills; thus, I have immersed myself in positions that would do so, such as being part of a research lab working on a team and coming up with my own ideas. These ideas have opened opportunities for presentations and writing a thesis. I also work as a TA for general chemistry, in which I teach and evaluate students,” said Beatriz. “Becoming chapter president of NSCS at FAU was one of my goals for this year and it has been a truly rewarding experience so far. I am really humbled to be the voice of so many innovative students.”
For upholding the pillars of scholarship and leadership, Beatriz is our Scholar of the Week!
