What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
UNITE, Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP)
What are you doing now?
I am currently a freshman in college with a mathematics major at Savannah State University.
What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?
The best things about the UNITE and REAP programs is the knowledge you acquire. I was exposed to so many different careers in the STEM field. It helped me find my interest and explore upon it more. The freedom is also great because it gives you that pre-college experience.
Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?
I am excited to be on the council because it allows me to share all the ideas I have to offer. Having first hand experience of how the programs run makes it easier to recommend where improvements are needed. I know my opinions will be beneficial to the council.
