About me


Hi. I am Carly and I am a college student at Virginia Tech. I am currently studying Biological Systems Engineering. This subject really spoke to me because of my interests in science and math from a hands on perspective. My goal after college is to go to veterinary school and eventually open my own practice. I am excited for the hands on opportunity that engineering allows. I am excited to really work on real life problems in the biological, chemical, and agricultural fields. Life is all about learning something. Whether you are in high school, in college, or working, you are always trying to learn something new. With knowledge and learning comes passion. The ambition of learning led us to America and it led us to the moon. Where will it lead you?

I hope you learn something from the many subjects discussed on my blog. Remember KEEP CALM AND LEARN ON.

    Oh my gosh Carly, I remember that picture from the beginning of the year. I think we were studying plants. Your welcome page is very profound and inspirational- I love your colorful motto.

    Peer Review of you site over all:
    I love how your blog has come together, despite any doubts you might have had at the beginning of the year. The individual blog posts are each creative, all include pictures. I’m glad you included the entire interview with Dr. Baumann. Because of the way your template works, all the posts are attached, which gives me a sense of reading though a type of storyline, with each individual blog post as a sort of snapshot along the way. Very creative prezi, and your diagrams on the lab reports under projects are detailed and engaging, explaining the concept really well to the target audience. I think each blog post does a great job of showcasing your voice. I love the jokes and the humor you include throughout, whether it be in the nature and nurture memes at the beginning or the science humor post you chose to do. It really reflects your voice. I love that how under each projects, you offer an explanation of what it is about. Your presentations are creative, and thanks for teaming up with me on the Meiosis project. I love your style, keep up the great work.

  3. I wholeheartedly agree with Serena’s comments about your creativity, style, and humor. Your website is incredible! I know you didn’t imagine you could create something like this at the beginning of the year. Little did you know you were and Emerging Techie!
