The symposium went well. At first I was very nervous because I do not like to speak in front of large groups, but as the symposium progressed I became less nervous. The symposium is an event that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
My symposium experience was alright compared to last year. Last years symposium experience was a lot better. The symposium helps me build confidence in myself to speak in front of other people. Even though I didn't get a lot of visitors this year it was great to be a part of this program again. It helped me learn so much that will help along the road in the future. Even though this is my last year still got one more symposium to make it my best! See you in Philly!

My experience at the symposium was adequate I believe since the amount of people was not few and I was able to answer most questions with ease. However I feel that I could've done better if I spoke with more confidence and/or energy to draw listeners in, since the majority of people who came to my poster seemed bored when I came towards the middle of the explanation of my project. On a side note, I think that the symposium was a great milestone to overcome and to do so gave a good inner feeling. I also felt that others' projects were interesting, though I wasn't able to completely understand all of them.
