“It was really nice winning an award for Student Research Week,” King said. “I am glad that I stayed positive because this opportunity was a great way to end my week. In addition, I enjoyed meeting other students in different colleges and departments here at Texas A&M. It was exciting to share my ideas and research. I got a lot of great feedback.”
