YES! Intern

I am 17 years old, a senior in high school, and in 2016 I was a YES! Global Genome intern at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. I learned about the Global Genome program by doing the first-year YES! internship. At first I felt that genomics would not a be a field I would like to study, but after doing this internship I can imagine it as a possibility.
