‘Beans means Heinz’ & Genetics – A Science Graduate’s Work Experience

What have beans and genetics got to do with each other?

Hello fellow science enthusiasts!

I hope everyone is enjoying their time at Monash and reading Scapegoat weekly. It feels weird to think that this time last year I was doing my own research into graduate programs and here I am two months into one.

Two years ago, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Genetics and Molecular Biology and now I work at KraftHeinz in the Marketing department.

Jenny’s experience: Access Monash Mentoring Program

Do you enjoy aspiring high school students to achieve their dreams?

Written by Jenny Truong.

Hi! I am Jenny. I’m a 3rd year science and commerce student and I have been an Access Monash Mentor for the past 2 years.

I became an Access Monash Mentor (AMM) because I wanted to share my knowledge about high school and Monash with students from under-represented communities to help them find their passion. With Access Monash, we get the opportunity to work one-on-one with Year 11 and 12 students at schools in the Dandenong, Frankston, Berwick, Mornington and Gippsland areas, where not many students end up going to university. Many of these students are the first students in their family to even consider going to university, so it feels quite rewarding to aspire them to go on to higher education after finishing high school.
