About Me

While the high school I have attended does not offer classes in the ever-changing fields of technology, I have found a way to integrate these fields into my study: I have taken online courses in STEM fields independently and am the founding president of my school's VEX Robotics Club. Additionally, I have significant STEM experience outside of my school. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with others in my community. Most recently, I was a recipient of the Environmental Justice Angel Award at the East Los Angeles Community Youth Center's annual Gala in November 2019.
