Favorite aspect of your school: I enjoy being surrounded by a supporting group of peers who share common interests.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? As I was once a participant in my elementary and middle school STEM nights, I was excited when presented the opportunity to volunteer at these events. Through Wave Robotics, I was able to share my inspiration with younger kids in events such as local STEM nights and Tech Adventure, a summer camp dedicated to exploring science and technology. Science is an ever developing area and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to pass down a passion of mine to younger minds.
