My name is Moriah Morris, I am an undergraduate Pre-Medicine student majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry at the University of Colorado in Denver. I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. I hope to become a surgical ophthalmologist one day, I find the eye to be incredibly fascinating and have worked in eyecare for six years. I am a research assistant (RA), teaching assistant (TA), and Learning Assistant (LA) for the Department of Chemistry. Due to my love of both teaching and healthcare, I intend to pursue a MD/PhD program specializing in ophthalmic health. In my free time, I enjoy international travel and snowboarding, one of my personal goals is to travel to the mountain of Zermatt, shared by both Switzerland and Italy, visiting both countries on the same day. I have always known that Chemistry was a challenging subject for many students, so when I took my first ever Chemistry course early in college, I took care to focus on the subject and put time into studying Chemistry. I quickly found that Chemistry was integral to understanding Biology. By progressing my Chemistry knowledge, subjects such as Biology, Physiology, and Medicine began to appear much clearer. My favorite aspect about Chemistry is understanding how variations in pH can stabilize many organic molecules and biological functions, I often use this method in my lab, but also on myself using various foods when I'm feeling curious. I hope to share these revelations and experiences with many other students at CU Denver, Chemistry truly is a wonderfully expansive field.
