November’s Student of the Month: Danielle Miyagishima

Danielle Miyagishima has been an aggie since she was 15 by attending courses at the university. She was born and raised in the beautiful city of Las Cruces and currently studies Biology at NMSU. Outside of school she is preoccupied with many extracurricular activities like being vice-president of the Pre-health Professions Club and a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars where she plans to achieve a Collegiate Excellence committee that will mentor students about the college experience. She is a Building Research Achievement in Neuroscience (BRAiN) Scholar and works in the Unguez Lab. Miyagishima is a Biology Catalyst for Biology 111 and a volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters. She is also a member of the Crisis Line (the CALL) here on campus! This busy student also likes to read. She states that her favorite book has always been, and remains being, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. If this Harry Potter fan could be anyone else in the world she would want to be a person that knows all the extremely important information about the world; such as being the person entrusted with the most information about national security and foreign relations that has access to any files she would desire. Her favorite quote is “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein. She explains that this is an important quote to her, not only because she finds it true, but because she thinks a person does not have to be incredibly smart to gain an incredible amount of knowledge; as long as the person stays curious. This wise student finds the Honors College beneficial due to having the advantage of early registration. She states that even though she knows she will be one of the first people to register, she still insists on waking up at 5 a.m. the morning of registration. Her advice to the future is to “Start Early.” She believes planning ahead pays off in the long run. She recommends the Honors College because it rewards hardworking students for his/her accomplishments. Now who wouldn’t want that?
