  Pamela Osborn
"So first my UCR experience. I live in Rancho Cucamonga just 30 minutes from UCR making it easy to commute all 4 years. I have greatly enjoyed being a CNAS  ambassador because I have met many people from all the different sciences, been able to represent my college, and do outreach to inspire future college students especially those interested in the sciences. I have participated in research for 2 years in Dr. Howard Friedman's lab working on studies involving human health behaviors and nonverbal communication. I will be finishing my own research studying nonverbal communication and how body language relates to an audience's perception of a presenter. My other activities outside of school include volunteering at Kaiser Permanente  Hospital in Riverside and at Community Baptist Church (Rancho Cucamonga) in the High School youth group. As you can tell I am very busy, but I love to spend free time with friends and family, and my favorite hobbies are going to the gym, doing yoga, and painting."


Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Finishing a Doctoral degree in Physical Therapy (DPT). 
Tell us about what animal you wish you could be and why?
I would want to be a bird able to fly anywhere, and just being able to fly would be pretty amazing.
What is your weirdest "quirk"?
If you really pay attention I love washing my hands and always have hand sanitizer. With me you could say I am a germophobe.  
If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I would travel a lot and work hard to make sure people can achieve their dreams since we would all have less time.
If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
To do the best you can with what you are given, never let someone tell you you cant do something, and smile as much as possible everyday.
