Hi everyone! My name is Heather Shipley and I’m a sophomore biochemistry student with a minor in science and agricultural communications. I was born and raised in Kansas City, and I’m thrilled to be a third-generation University of Missouri tiger. My passion for science began long before I came to Mizzou. As a kid, I would watch and read science-fiction and hoped that I could live in those worlds someday. So when it came time to pick a degree, it was only fitting that I’d choose a major that is growing and changing every day. The further into it I got, the more I realized that we need to tell all of these amazing discoveries to the world. Being in CAFNR has solidified my belief that science and agriculture must work hand-in-hand to help better each other. I am so excited to write for CAFNR Corner Post and explore connections that I never knew existed!
