SCIENCE
Human biology intrigues me the most . Its complexity means that with more knowledge I have , more questions follow . Studying science has helped me build my critical thinking and analytical skills , and having the opportunity to work with my Monash peers from different backgrounds broadened my perspective and view of the world .”
