Arial Wei, MCM’20
My name is Haomiao Wei /How-meow Way/, or Arial from Chengdu, China. I just obtained my BS in Microbiology this spring from Colorado State University. Through my undergraduate study, I learned how different pathogens such as viruses and bacteria cause diseases in humans and animals on an individual level. Besides the micro world, I am eager to learn how to monitor and manage diseases at a broader scale and what role the environment plays in disease transmission, which is essential in order to apply the One Health approach in wildlife conservation field. This is also why I am drawn to MCM program. In my free time, I enjoy watching anime, working out, listening to music, and anything new that worth trying. I have an Aussie-cocker mix and her name is Pudding. Having been to lots of places with various economic and social development status, I witnessed a huge contrast in both domestic and wild animal treatments among different countries. My future goal is simple, I am hoping to get my DVM one day and help animals in the world that are less fortunate.
