ANAKA: HEAD RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT I am currently in my 3rd year of Honours Neuroscience and I am driven by curiosity. Though the research and development process has been an arduous endeavour marked by many failures, the end goal of creating an eco-friendly, biodegradable product makes this journey well worth its trouble. This year, I would love to see our R&D team develop a working Hempact prototype as a first step towards realizing sustainable social entrepreneurship. When I'm not working on the Hempact project, I enjoy spending my time volunteering in a speech language pathology lab studying child language and literacy. In the future, I aspire to become a speech language pathologist or a pediatrician.
