      I’d been studying for 3 years to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and then for 2 more years to get my Master’s Degree in Cellular & Molecular Biology and Neuroscience.
      To be a good scientist I still have to work hard for my Phd that will last for 4 years (I’m currently in my first year), during which I want to improve my skills in problem solving & scientific writing.

      It is quite a long journey, but I think it totally worths it 🙂
