We had a guest lecturer in Microbiology today, a well-dressed man who spoke impeccable English. He's a pediatric infectious disease specialist and gave great information regarding viruses and their clinical presentations. After class, as he was headed out the door, I asked him if I could perhaps shadow him in his work or volunteer in his department. He said of course and handed me his business card, making sure to write his personal cell number on it. I didn't look at the card until after he was gone...he's the Rector of the University (Stateside, that would be the equivalent to the President of the school). Of course, I unknowingly ask the #1 person in the school to ask to shadow. Only the best for me!
