I just wanted to thank Helen for everything over the past few years. She really helped me become more engaged with my academic passions and through her guidance, I was able to find my place in biotech. Before our conversations, I had no idea what I wanted to do, and I couldn’t figure out what my ideal career would be. Now, I can definitely see what my strong suits are and how I can bring those into my future endeavors.

The timezone differences have been a bit of a challenge, since I live in Hong Kong, but Helen was willing to work together at a much later time than usual work hours. Thanks to her for being so patient! I’ve learned so much from her, from having her teach me how to ace the SAT English sections to our discussions about American politics. Good luck to her with her next round of Blue Stars students!
