Grace grew up in Palm Beach Florida. Although she was not wealthy by any measure, she wouldn’t call herself underprivileged. She grew up in an environment that supported education and truly made her feel that she could be whatever she wanted to be as long as she was willing to put in the work. When Grace entered the University of Miami, nothing held her back from pursuing her current course program in Biology. She’s grown up with the confidence to consider not only a career in the sciences, but also one in law so that she can become a leader who has a voice at the table where the decisions are made for the daily lives of scientists, the pioneers of our time.
