My name is Mana Anvar and I am currently a senior at Notre Dame High School. I will turn 18 on August 21st and look forward to going to UC Berkeley in the fall while studying biology. Taking AP Bio has made me realize that this is the field I want to go into. I love ice-skating, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I am passionate about helping others and making a difference in the community as well as on larger scales. I took the AP Biology because it has always been a field that has greatly interested me and made me want to pursue and learn more about. After taking it, I hope to pursue medicine at Berkeley and know that taking this course has exposed me to the fundamentals that I will need to know in medicine. This experience has affected my life in a positive and meaningful way and I have come out of this course feeling like I have gained useful knowledge that will benefit me in the future. Thank you so much and I look forward to updating my blog as I go to college in the fall!
