What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
The High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP)
What are you doing now?
I am studying computer science at UT Austin and continuing internships in software engineering.
What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?
HSAP provided a wonderful opportunity to dive deeper into a professional work environment at a young age, which allowed me to further cultivate my leadership, critical-thinking and team building skills.
Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?
I strongly desire to inspire the next generation of STEM leaders and believe one of the best ways of gaining exposure to STEM at a young age is through AEOP. Just as AEOP helped my STEM growth, I hope to give back through the leadership council.
