Julie Itty '13 received a degree in Neuroscience and Psychology with a minor in Chemistry. As a research assistant in Dr. Justin Storbeck’s Affective Neuroscience Laboratory, she completed her honors thesis on the implications of emotion on retention and relearning. In her spare time, she enjoyed volunteering and shadowing physicians at Long Island Jewish Medical Center to learn more about the medical field. “Being a scholarship recipient has allowed me to utilize many of the resources and opportunities that Queens College has to offer. Not only have I been able to major in fields that I enjoy, but I have also been able to explore other passions related to the medical field. As an aspiring physician, I hope to have a positive impact on the lives of others and improve public health. Thank you again for your generous contribution. Your gift has made it possible for me to move closer to attaining my future goals.” Julie has been accepted to and will be attending medical school on Long Island.
