Hi! My name is Nicole Green. I am in grade eleven in Olds, AB. Interests I have include; skiing, curling, badminton, volleyball, running, and waterskiing. I love reading/writing, music, and baking. My considerations for the future are a career in human rights law. I am excited to continue my science fair projects and would love to take the project I'm currently working on even further. I have been entering science fairs for the last eight years and really enjoyed my time at the CWSF the last four years was fantastic and inspiring! The inspiration for my projects comes from attempting to use science to discover solutions to social problems. I have a passion for the human mind and the area of psychology as it applies to real world issues.

Abstract:Immigration and the globalization of our world is a prominent topic in today's society. The purpose of this project was to determine the effects of culture shock on immigrants and develop a solution for unfavourable effects. Through research with two hundred eighty test subjects I discovered that culture shock is having detrimental effects on immigrants and that an increase in serotonin can reverse these effects.
