I’m currently reading a book from the neurologist Oliver Sacks where he’s written about some of his patients, including a dude with agnosia who mistakes his own wife for a hat (and is the title of the book). I’m really enjoying his writing style! The last book I read was called “Proof of Heaven” written by a neurosurgeon who claims to have been to the afterlife whilst in a coma, which I found interesting as it deals with the whole consciousness debate - I’ve had some heavy discussions with strangers on public transport who’ve seen me read it haha! I like anything neuro related really, I haven’t had much time to read many books that aren’t academic but I’d suggest those two if you’re interested! :) xo
So, transform yourself first…
Because you are young and have dreams and want to do something meaningful, that in itself, makes you our future and our hope.
Keep expanding your horizon, decolonize your mind, and cross borders.

Ofcourse sweetie! Critically analysing research is a really good skill because it makes you realise where theres gaps in research and how to improve your own. I usually critique by looking at the research methods and sample. If the sample was done on students, or a group of people all the same age and race, which most research done within Universities are, it’s not a good representation of all people and therefore is a weakness. The methodology behind the research is also a point of interest - each method has their pros and cons, for example interviewing someone might make participants give a socially desirable answer to avoid being judged etc, just look into how and who the research was conducted on and it should give you some clues to start with, I hope I managed to give abit of a helpful example for you! Congratulations into getting into college and the best of luck with your course! If you need any more help, feel free to ask :)
