STEM Summer  Scholar 2012 - Kameka Deans

My Name is Kameka Deans, and I am from the beautiful island of Jamaica, where I worked as a midwife for five years prior to my move to the United States.

I am presently a student at Bronx Community College, and I intend to complete my Bachelor of Science in biochemistry. I am very passionate about mathematics and the sciences.

With that enthusiasm, I eagerly accepted membership into this research program. I have learned so much this summer, and I am indeed grateful for the experience.

Many thanks to my mentor (Dr. Thomas Young), Dr. Neil Phillip (Bronx Community College), and all the faculty members of the Chemistry and Biology Departments (Lehman College).
