This is my third summer being able to do research and work on many different projects. I have enjoyed all my experiences but every single experience is different; this is why I enjoy research a great deal. There is always something new to learn with each experience. I believe research is what you as the individual choose to make it. If you go into your research wanting to learn more, you will. Independent research allows you to develop your thinking skills at the same time teaching you how to use your resources. Even though I have done research before this is still a new experience for me. Being able to look at the Hoyer lift from a human factors perspective is new and exciting.
