My name is Maia Eubanks and I am an incoming freshman at Rice University. One of the reasons I have considered a major in physics is that its applications can be applied to a variety of aspects of our daily lives. I love to discover how things work and also engage in hands-on activities. Since I possess a genuine enthusiasm for science, I believe that pursuing a major related to this field of study would be a beneficial way to utilize and share my talents in my community. Moreover, with additional instruction, understanding and experimentation involving various physical applications of our world and universe, I am certain that I will be thoroughly prepared to develop ideas, techniques and innovations that will impact all of humanity for future generations.
