Tasia Bos, B.S. Biology and Biochemistry alumna (2019) and former McNair Scholar, recently was accepted into UT Southwestern’s Biomedical PhD Program.
Tasia interviewed with four schools, and received admissions to all of them, but chose UT for its reputation. Tasia is looking forward to starting this upcoming fall. After she completes her PhD, she intends to work in academia as a professor and a researcher She enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for science. Serving as a tutor at WT for three years, “I enjoy showing students that they should not be intimidated by the subject" said Tasia.
What advice would you give to future students?
"Balancing life and classes often isn’t easy. I know there are lots of students that must work multiple jobs to pay for their education, some students have families to take care of, and some have health issues. The most important thing is to take care of yourself and your well-being. Second, I know it is easier said than done, but keep persevering. Your degree will be worth it, and you will have an encouraging story about how you balanced your education and the chaos called life. Show yourself and others what you are capable of."
Congratulations on all your hard work, Tasia!
