Seven students from as close as Kentucky and as far as China are destined for GLIMPSE 2020, the 29th Alltech International Symposium, May 19-22, in Lexington, Ky., to compete in the Alltech Young Scientist Competition. Although the four undergraduate finalists and three graduate finalists come from different countries and cultures, they share the common aspiration of advancing the world through scientific discovery.
After finishing secondary school I entered the Izhevsk State Agricultural Academy and Music School, but over time the science became a priority for me. My interest and love of science grew even more in my last year of studying when I was writing my paper. After a successful defense of my graduation project and graduation from the Academy, I decided to enter graduate school.
It was two years ago when I first came across a poster that read "Alltech Young Scientist Competition" while on my way to the reading room. I found it interesting and time was available, so I decided to look into the details. I met Dr. Ao and Miss Luo from Alltech and Dr. Ao's speech was so inspiring that I decided take part in the competition. However, it was my second year in university and I did not yet know how prepare a paper. I asked my physiology teacher for help. She is a reference professor and was my tutor. A few days later, I joined in her group.
When I was in the second year of my undergraduate courses in Brazil, one of my professors asked if anyone was interested in doing a research project with her. I didn't really know that we could do research after just a couple years in college, so I was interested to learn more about it. After that class, I talked to her about it. She told me that I would work with bees, and that I would receive an R$300.00 (Reais - Brazil, around USD$150.00 in 2009) scholarship and that would go towards my curriculum cost.
