Hi, everyone! My name is Ege, and I am a rising second year at the University of Chicago pursuing Biological Sciences and the pre-med curriculum. When I am not killing several samples of e. coli in the lab (sorry!), I sing with my a cappella group, write for the newspaper, produce artwork, and tutor my peers. My other loves include tea, music, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, travel, Nutella, Bones, audiobooks, the Office, and RadioLab podcasts.
