altThe past four months have truly been an exciting journey for me as I ventured into the world of medical research for the first time. Being attached to brain research institute (BRIMS) seemed daunting at first but we were given the warmest welcome. I learnt the do's and don'ts of being in a laboratory, how to use lab equipment's and the common protocols used in research. Our research was focused on a region of the brain called the habenula which is important in the study of psychiatric disorders such as addiction and depression.

I learnt that a lot of discipline and perseverance is needed when conducting research. I learnt how to manage my time properly and to keep going even though I would consistently not obtain the desired results. I learnt the importance of teamwork in succeeding in specific tasks. I feel extremely fortunate to be given this wonderful opportunity and i am prepared to step unto the next stae of my life: medical school.

In this Young Scholars Program, I was involved in a public health project to assess the awareness and use the electronic cigarettes among Monash University students. With much guidance from my supervisors - Dr. Sivalal Sadasivan and Dr. Amudha Kadirvelu, I have learned valuable skills such as literature search, citing research references, designing questionnaire and much more. This research program has also trained me to practice good time management, as I have to juggle between my project and other activities scheduled` for young scholars. These activities have broadened my scope of knowledge as well as my ability to speak up and present ideas. Along the journey, I made friends with others young scholars and had treasurable memories with them. I truly believe this experience will benefit me in my upcoming medical studies. I am grateful both of my supervisors and Monash University Young Scholars Program for giving me this opportunity.

When I embarked on this program, I had little idea what I was getting into. Probably some lab work, maybe writing a scientific paper? I had not the slightest clue. Yet, after these short 4 months which passed faster than I could imagine, I got onto the realm of literature searches and literature reviews, even as far as to even write a literature review myself, that was later submitted to a conference. I assisted my supervisors Dr Lakshmi and Dr Sen in organizing long distance learning workshops, developed and translated (English to Malay) evaluation questionnaire and even made catering arrangements. I learnt to take minutes, write reports, literature reviews and abstracts. At times, the work became stressful when deadlines came bearing down.

I am very grateful for the Young Scholars Program as it taught me a valuable lesson on time management. I was not introduced to the many intracacies of university life, but also made friends with those we'bb be spending the next 5 years.
