Curtis Nyarko is putting in a lot of late nights followed by early mornings at the lab – hoping to snare a high wage job in a high-tech field.
Nyarko is a junior at Florida State University majoring in biology. He wants to stay in Florida and pursue a career in medicine.
Nyarko says his STEM degree — science, technology, engineering and math — will be worth it.
“This degree is not an easy degree at all. But at the end of it all when you have your career – and it’s a good career – it is worth it,” Nyarko said. “You know, nothing great comes without great sacrifice.”
