Edward Zakher, an economics major at Cal State San Bernardino, walked away with first place honors with the top scoring presentation in his section at the California State University’s Student Research Competition held last weekend.
“Winning first place felt amazing. After winning second place in last year’s CSU research competition, I gained a lot of confidence in my ability to perform research, but I was also shown what separates me from being someone who could get first place,” said Zakher. “So, to me, winning first place showed progress.
