Homo sapiens singular form?


Would it be proper to say "You are a Homo sapien." Is the capitalization correct? Do I still need to follow binomial nomenclature? Would it be better if I wrote "You are a part of the species known as Homo sapiens."? Thank you so much.

Homo sapiens is the name of the species itself, not a plural form. The latter of the two suggestions would be correct.
