Project Title: Measuring VOCs and Other Pollutants Near and Active Oil and Gas Drilling Site in Broomfield, CO
Mentor: Dan Bon, Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment
Bio: Khokolah is a first generation student who immigrated to the United States in 2015, now working towards her associate’s degree from the Community College of Denver.
Khokolah came to the United States with vast goals and ambitions that started with learning English and include becoming a doctor as well as explorations into getting to know the world, its inhabitants, and herself!
After the completion of her associate's, Khokolah will be transferring to the University of Colorado Denver to obtain a degree in biology which she plans on using to attend medical school. She hopes the RECCS research experience will help her gain valuable scientific knowledge and an understanding of the research process, which she will apply towards medical school and a future career in medicine.
Khokolah is very excited to start the RECCS Program, not only to collect valuable experiences, but to make friends along the way!
