The Importance of Biology and Chemistry in Solving Future Challenges

Melina Operrer, a Biology student at the University of Innsbruck and a former student of ACS Athens, shares her inspiring story of following her passion for reptiles, specifically snakes. Melina's extended essay project was focused on demonstrating the remarkable learning abilities of snakes and dispelling negative stereotypes associated with them. As she recognizes the importance of biology and chemistry in solving future challenges such as pandemics, Melina highlights the significance of pursuing one's passion and leveraging the opportunities provided by ACS Athens for both personal and academic growth. Melina's commitment to reptiles serves as an excellent example of how pursuing unique interests in education can be transformative.

Melina Opperer

Melina Opperer was born in Innsbruck, Austria but thanks to her father’s occupation, grew up in different countries including Samoa and Jamaica. The opportunity she had to grow up in different cultures during my formative years has certainly influenced the person I have become. When she started 8th grade she moved to Greece and resumed her education at ACS Athens. She always had a keen interest in Biology and wanted to study Veterinary Medicine. That dream changed during the period she was writing her Extended Essay when she decided that Behavioral Biology was a better fit for her. Thus, when she graduated in 2020, Melina moved back to Innsbruck where she enrolled in the Leopold – Franzens Universität. She is now in her second year studying biology with plans to complete a Masters’s in Behavioral Biology in Vienna.
