PGSS 1998 provided me with opportunities in the classroom and in the laboratory that were not available at my public school. Without PGSS, I would never have learned that I have an affinity for science and research. Being surrounded by other exceptional teenagers alsomade a huge impact on me because for the first time in my life I felt normal instead of nerdy or weird. Finally, I think I was much better prepared to handle the workload in college than I would have been without my PGSS experience.
