Tell us about yourself
I am a 17-year-old junior in high school from Frederick, MD. I participated in the Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science (GEMS) program during the summer of 2021 as an Assistant Near-Peer Mentor. I am a varsity cross country and track athlete who loves to spend my free time with friends and family. I also love running, reading and learning. I really enjoy my AP Bio and Calculus classes. From the Council, I am hoping to gain leadership experience and knowledge as well as develop some ways to encourage other students to participate in AEOP programs to advance their interests in STEM.
