Hannah Aken

I am a first-generation student majoring in Microbiology and minoring in chemistry. I plan on attending graduate school to get my PhD in immunology so I can pursue my own research and hopefully discover cures for many immunological diseases. In my spare time, I love playing board games with my friends, being outdoors, eating lots of food, and collecting succulents.
