Year in Review

My first year of college has taken its time. With many social and political issues + the dreaded coronavirus lurking at every corner, the level of burnout has been unimaginable. However, this summer is a time to not only reflect on the past year, but also set myself up for success in the coming year. There is much to be said in terms of friendships, academics, extracurriculars, and just life in general. Many say you live life once (#yolo), but no. Rather, you die once and you live many days. Each day is only worth what you make out of it. You have just under 60,000 seconds within a day. How time can you alot for others? How much of that time can you allocate for needs of yourself? Your goals? Your future? Your present?

HSS e-Portfolio

Hey everyone! My skills and expertise in WordPress had their beginnings right here! We can only progress from here, from one letter to one new post to one full database of never-ending blog posts.

G.O.A.L.S.

[ “G.O.A.L.S.” is a place where students write about how their planned, current, and future activities may fit into the Honors & Scholars G.O.A.L.S.: Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement. For more guidance on using your ePortfolio, including questions and prompts that will help you get started, please visit the Honors & Scholars ePortfolio course in Carmen. To get answers to specific questions, please email eportfolio@osu.edu. Delete these instructions and add your own post.

  • Global Awareness: Students cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individual’s unique differences. For example, consider course work, study abroad, involvement in cultural organizations or activities, etc.
  • Original Inquiry: Honors & Scholars students understand the research process by engaging in experiences ranging from in-class scholarly endeavors to creative inquiry projects to independent experiences with top researchers across campus and in the global community. For example, consider research, creative productions or performances, advanced course work, etc.
  • Academic Enrichment: Honors & Scholars students pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom.
  • Leadership Development: Honors & Scholars students develop leadership skills that can be demonstrated in the classroom, in the community, in their co-curricular activities, and in their future roles in society.

Artifacts

[Artifacts are the items you consider to be representative of your academic interests and achievements. For each entry, include both an artifact and a detailed annotation.  An annotation includes both a description of the artifact and a reflection on why it is important to you, what you learned, and what it means for your next steps.  For more guidance on using your ePortfolio, including questions and prompts that will help you get started, please visit the Honors & Scholars ePortfolio course in Carmen.

About Me

You had to get to know me didn’t you? Who am I? Where do I come from? How did get from one place to another? What do I do?

All of these are great questions, but let’s take a step back and talk about the simple things. My name is Prasanjit Sahoo [nice to meet you, too!]. I currently go to the Ohio State University for a Bachelors in Neuroscience. I currently plan on pursuing a MD/PhD for Neuroscience. I love to talk about the brain, knowledge/philosophy, space, mathematics, and everything in between. Why do I love science so much? Simply because it is all interconnected. I can find answers to a solutions in different fields. It is like a web of ideas that revolutionized the world. My goal is to be the best one can be in the field that I choose. Why? Because you must always reach for the stars! What if I don’t make it? Well then, I’ll have landed on the moon, which would be farther than many. Yes, I guess I’m a tad bit ambitious, but I do hope to inspire a lot for a bunch of positive within the world. I also teach science to middle schoolers and have started getting into digital artwork (primarily logo making)! I look forward to gaining more skills and honing my strengths. Right now, college is just a stepping stone for my dream.

I also got into a bit of photography. 🙂
