My plans for the future after I graduate in May are to pursue my masters with the Soybean Breeding and Genetics program at Virginia Tech for the next two years. I will be working on some compilation of projects dealing with Soybean mosaic virus and Low-Phytate trait in Soybeans.

After my masters I hope to work in some aspect of Crop Improvement in the State of Virginia.
Impact of GO program
The part of GO Scholars that really helped me was working with my mentor. He was very helpful and had excellent advice for me when it came to deciding where to go to grad school and was always available when I needed to talk.
