Major: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Bio:

Hi! My name is Gila and I’m a Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major from the San Francisco Bay Area. My family is Russian-Jewish, and this largely shaped my language and culture growing up. On campus I’m heavily involved with the LC Dance Company; choreography and dance performance are longtime passions of mine. Right now I’m also very interested in learning about mental health, and I spend some of my free time during the week volunteering as a counselor for Crisis Text Line. After LC I hope to go to medical school and integrate my interest in mental health and my love for science in a career as a physician. In my free time I like to read, hike, watch movies, and cook with my family and friends.

Activities:

LC Dance Company, Active Minds, Weissman lab, volunteering

Awards:

Barbara Hirschi Neely Scholarship, Herbert A. Templeton National Merit Scholarship
