#SeniorSpotlight

My name is Eve Guess, and I am a senior at DSST: Stapleton High School. After graduating high school, I intend to pursue higher education at an accredited university. Of the eight schools I applied to, I am most interested in continuing my education at a Historically Black College or University. I am very excited to have been accepted to Hampton University and will be incredibly involved in clubs and organizations at my school. My plans after earning my degree include becoming a biotechnician and working in a research lab that focuses its efforts on genetic and heritable diseases. I will then return to school to begin graduate work toward my master's in science. Moving forward, I would like to work in the area of research and medicinal development.
