Hi all,
My name is Ronit Ovadia and I just joined the Science Division. I am totally blind and I will be a college freshman in the fall, and I plan to major in biology, with a minor in psychology. My ultimate goal is to become a genetic counselor, which is a person who counsel families during pregnancy or after a baby is born with a birth defect or genetic condition. The counselor will analyze the family tree and use probability to estimate chances of the family having a child with a certain condition. Although this field is not very scientific, I thought it would be helpful for me to be a part of this group, especially while I am taking many biology classes in college.
I hope that I will be able to contribute a lot and learn a lot from this list. I am very glad to be a part of this group.
Look forward to talking to all of you.
Ronit Ovadia
