Background:

My name is Brent Cook, and I am from Tucson, Arizona. I currently attend The University of Arizona, and am majoring in Physics, with a minor in Computer Science. I chose to study physics because it is challenging and interesting above any other subject I have looked into; it also has played key roles in the development of our everyday technology. Physics has proven to be a challenge at times, but the main attributes a person must have to get past the classes is to have determination, curiosity, and patience. These three traits will surely help a physics major rather than condemn, and I would stress that anyone going into this field try these avenues of behavior rather than become down, stressed or angry.
