Background:

My name is Nicole Martinez and I am an 18 year old freshman at the University of Chicago. I was born and raised in New York City and growing up, was very interested in math and science. However, it was in my junior year of high school that I was introduced to physics and immediately became captivated with the subject. I had finally found something that combined my two interests. I love that physics can give an explanation for everything yet at the same time generate so many questions. I am majoring in physics and excited to further my knowledge in this fascinating field.
