Bushra Manzar London, Ky. / 17 Biosystems Engineering BS, 2015 University of Kentucky In my undergraduate studies, as I learned more about the “different” sciences, biological and physical sciences became less and less mutually exclusive, and their horizons merged for me. The different realms of science always seem to complement each other without fault! I like solving problems, creatively brainstorming with others, and thinking independently as well—all important activities for future biosystems engineers. Knowing my interests, my older sister—a stem cell researcher—influenced my decision to pursue biomedical engineering as a specialization within my biosystems degree. I am applying to medical school this year because I want to use what I’ve learned in engineering—thinking critically and reducing problems to the simplest form—in a medical setting. I started college when I was twelve—somewhat unusual! I loved my major and, despite my age, quickly made friends. Regardless of your birth date, though, you have to hit the ground running freshman year. My brothers, Shahid and Zahid—16 and 14—have a shared passion for math and biology, and they received their degrees with me this spring in biosystems engineering as well. I suppose we are very young graduates! All three of us were all fascinated by our senior design projects, which solidified much of what we studied over the course of four years at UK and brought all that we’d learned down to a simple biosystems directive: find the optimum solution to implement the design!
