Hello, everyone! My name is Lauren Batu, I am from Sterling Heights, Michigan, and I am a sophomore who is majoring in Human Biology. In the fall, I will be starting my second year at Michigan State and I am so excited! I do not have any previous experiences in anthropology, and this class will definitely help me change that. The reason I am taking this class is because I thought it was be interesting to learn about how culture, health, and illness relate and I was hoping to fulfill a minor in Bioethics. This will jumpstart my journey in doing so.
The picture above is of Lakeside Beach located in Port Huron, Michigan. This picture is relevant to me because this is where my family and friends spend most of their time in the summer. I’ve always enjoyed being in the water and love taking our boat out because it relaxes me. I feel that the lakeshore is one of the most beautiful places to be. It’s one of the places that I will never get sick of visiting. My favorite part about going to the beach is watching the sun set at the end of a long day!
