Career goal: researcher

Hats off to this week’s Hercules scholarship winner, Khalil Guy, a physics and math double major from Fisk University. The future researcher has perfect 4.0 grade point average, as he lives and breathes science. Read more about Khalil below.

I was born in Macon, Georgia on June 18, 1999 to Karla Lewis and Anthony Guy. I have lived in Macon my entire life. Along with my older and younger sisters, I attended public and private schools in the area, graduating from Central High School in 2017.

Currently, I am a sophomore at Fisk University with a major Physics and Math and a minor in Computer Science. My cumulative GPA is a 4.0.

At Fisk, I find myself able to freely express myself through various clubs and organizations while also challenging myself in a rigorous academic environment, with challenge being something that I have valued since I was a high school student. While I do enjoy this aspect of physics, I also appreciate the solidity of this field because it is the foundation of what we know about our universe. All other branches of physical science are built from our understanding of physics. Upon learning something new in physics, one opens an entirely new and exciting path for scientific discoveries, the advancement of our knowledge, and the application thereof.

I plan to pursue a career in research so that I can contribute to this brilliant drive of humanity to discovery, learning, and creativity.
