2019 Ahtna Special Forces: An Update from Tvetene Carlson

Tvetene Carlson

Tvetene Carlson is attending graduate school at UC Berkeley and took a few minutes away from his busy schedule to update us on his experience moving to California and starting a new school.

My school year has been going well. Moving to California was for the most part uneventful, thank goodness, and my roommates are fantastic. It was a rough adjustment relearning how to take classes, but I’m getting into the groove of things and have learned quite a bit of chemistry and biology in particular this semester. The students and faculty here have all been incredibly welcoming and it’s been a blast exploring the Bay Area with them. The big question I have hanging over me right now is what I want to do research on for the next few years, but I have time to decide on that.
