 Meet our 2015-16 Peer Advisor ~ April Oleson


My name is April Oleson, and the O in my last name usually has a smiley face inside of it. I was born in Arizona but grew up in Southern Oregon. I am a Chemistry and Spanish major and basically I absolutely love any new way of expressing the world. I also love Leo Tostoy because he is master of expressing humanity, and Charles Dickens because he is master at making us laugh at humanity. To me, there is almost nothing better than laughter.

Most of my chemistry experience has been in organic chemistry, but I have a strong interest in the physical components of chemistry as well. I plan to pursue a PhD in Chemistry, followed by teaching high school science, preferably in Spanish-speaking communities. My ultimate dream is to one day open up my own school. One focuses on inspiring science and the scientific process in the beautiful, curious minds of children.
