Kyle Simon ’15

Name: Kyle Simon ’15
Majors: Genetics and Psychology
Hometown: Spring, Texas
Experience: Theory-to-Practice Grant, ‘Sexual Orientation Perception: A Research Analysis,’ Conducted at the University of Toronto, May to July, 2014

Lesson Learned: “I think the trip really helped me become more confident in my abilities as a student, and really apply all of the concepts that I learned at OWU. At the same time, it also gave me some experience living in another country in a more global community of people with diverse backgrounds.”
