I received runner up for the student research poster competition !! Which is especially exciting because it was my very first conference! I have absolutely had an amazing time with everyone in the American Arachnidological Society and am incredibly grateful to understand even more why research is so wonderful. Now, I am beginning to write my manuscript for publication and look for grants to attend more conferences in 2020!! I have learned so much within the past few days and I am still ever so eager to learn more!!
