Want to work with dolphins?
Then don't skip your Calc class. I have a friend who wrote an article about her experience studying dolphins. The spectacular thing about it is that she highlights that it wasn't simply love of the adorable sea mammal that got her where she is now. It was coursework in genetics, and algebra, and biology. It was working hard as an unpaid intern. It was dedication, boredom, and enjoying the enormous, but difficult to catch, thrill of discovery.
