Skylar Dewes

I am a sophomore biology major, chemistry minor. I first attended SI as a student in BIOL 141 in the fall of 2012. I found the SI sessions helpful and fun. I wanted to give other students a similar experience to mine so I became an SI leader. I have a blast helping students learn how to learn the material in order to be successful in BIOL 141.

Raissa Dantas

My name is Raissa, pronounced "Ha-ee-sa" because I am from Brazil. I am currently a third-year Biochemistry student, Meyerhoff and MARC U*STAR scholar at UMBC. This semester I am also conducting research at Dr. Marten's lab in the Department of Biochemical Engineering and studying for the MCATs. 


Biology has been my favorite subject since I took AP Bio in high school. Still, BIOL 141 was very challenging and intimidating for me. Fortunately, I had the right studying strategies and used my resources to do well in the class. I hope that through SI I can share with students the skills that helped me to succeed, and guide their study sessions in the right direction. I really appreciate the people who did that for me as a freshman, and it is an honor to influence other students in the same way now.
