What has been the most exciting part of your career so far?

What would you tell yourself at age 18?
To never doubt yourself. Do not stress yourself out about your college science exams because biochemistry is your major for a reason - you always excel at it. And do not get fixed upon any one path to your career; there are many roads to get to your destination. Who knows, you might end up somewhere even better than where you originally planned to be!
