Crystal Lee '12
At the University of California, Berkeley, Crystal is studying neuroscience. "I think it’s interesting how the whole brain works," she said.
As a member of the USA Karate Junior National Team, Lee competed across the world while holding a 4.49 GPA in high school. She has a dojo in her home, and her father is her coach. Karate taught her humility and peace, Crystal said. It also illustrates her interest in the brain. She is able to sense that moment when an opponent in karate is about to strike and can thwart their attack. Today, she is interested in neuroscience so she can learn why moments like that happen.
