Throughout my Spelman journey, I have encountered a variety of complex assignments and projects that required critical thinking skills, reflections and analyses, and the use of different tools. Each assignment required a tremendous amount of time and dedication in order to develop a successful final product. Being a biology major, I had to find ways to relate biological features with assigned topics from core electives of different subject areas.
