Chemistry major Jennifer Plotkin poses in front of a blank wall.Jennifer received her S.B. Degree from the Department of Chemistry in 2015.

MIT is exceptional in the way that it promotes collaboration. Some of my proudest learning moments were shared; they were the late-night problem set breakthroughs that could only happen when a group of us put our heads together. As a medical student, I continue to work in multidisciplinary teams to solve problems. I am grateful that my MIT education taught me just how powerful teamwork can be and how to utilize each team member’s individual strengths to advance learning for everyone.
