Hello!  I am a 2012 Tier One Scholar at the University of Houston pursuing double degrees in Chemistry and Spanish.  This summer I will be traveling to Cuernavaca, Mexico as part of the Kukulcan Spanish Immersion program.  Through Kukulcan, I will be taking two advanced level Spanish classes in written and oral communication.

Blimey! I am beyond excited for what Summer 2013 has in store. On June 3rd, I will be flying to London with several other Honors College students for our study abroad program led by Professor Cremins to Britain and Ireland.

Now that the first week of teaching is done, I can safely say that I will definitely pursue a career as an educator after my years as an actuary. Teaching faculty members English the past week has been a very rewarding experience. Over the past three days (I will explain in a bit why I say three), I have seen my students' conversational English skills greatly develop.

My name is Cara Riffe, and I am a rising sophomore studying biology here at the University of Houston. Last semester, thanks to my Tier One scholarship and UH's amazing faculty and staff, I joined Dr. Jokubas Ziburkus' neuroscience lab as an undergraduate research assistant.
