About the Author

My name is Danielle Cook. I am currently a freshman student at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, studying with a major in Biomedical Science and a minor in Spanish. I grew up in a small city in central Wisconsin. Although I spend most of my time doing work for school, I enjoy other activities too, such as reading, rollerblading, singing, spending time with friends, and volunteering at my local Humane Society.

This website was a project for my Organismal Biology class, under the instruction of Drs. Tom Volk and Greg Sandland. I chose the daffodil as my subject of interest for a variety of reasons. First of all, I think daffodils are really beautiful plants. They're very common in gardens, and occasionally, I've grown them in my own garden at home. While studying plants during my biology class, angiosperms stood out to me as a unique topic, and I decided that I wanted to learn more about them.

You may be wondering what I want to do with a future degree in Biomedical Science. Ultimately, I aspire to become a small animals veterinarian. My major passion in life is caring for animals, and I've grown up with a pet rabbit, as well as fish. Outside of my house, I've spent a lot of time with other animals too. In my free time, I like to volunteer at the Portage County Humane Society, where I work with cats and dogs to socialize them for their prospective homes. In high school, I took several courses with focuses in animal biology, including a small animals and veterinary science preparation class. During this class, I learned valuable skills like giving shots and grooming, that I believe helped pique my interest in the subject of veterinary science.
