      The best part about being a scientist is the excitement and rewarding experience when I’ve made a discovery. As scientists, most of the time we have to endure long hours of mundane, repetitive laboratory work. However, at the end of the project I am happy that I am able to contribute to the scientific community (even though my contribution may be a small one).
