Charlotte Middleton, Squier - Bachelor of Science
Dean's List Award 2020
I am incredibly honoured to have received this prestigious award for the second year in a row. I believe my love for learning and the freedom to explore my varied interests have motivated me to excel throughout my degree.
I credit Monash for allowing me to do so with my Genomics and Bioinformatics course. While I've expended most of my energy in honing my skills in science, I had the opportunity to take up quite a few compelling subjects like Journalism, Gender studies, and Data Science.
Speaking from firsthand experience, I strongly recommend students to take up elective subjects that are unrelated to your Major. I have found that by exploring other interests, you get to take your mind off more complicated matters that serious subjects tend to give.
