What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
Gains in the Education of Math and Science (GEMS)
What are you doing now?
I’m a junior in high school looking to major in computer science in the future.
What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?
Participating in GEMS gave me a lot of great opportunities–for one, I learned more about careers in the STEM field I’d never even heard of before. I got a lot of hands-on lab experience I couldn’t have gotten at school, and I made new friends in the program too.
Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?
I loved my time participating in the GEMS program, and I think it (along with the other AEOP programs) would be a really valuable experience for lots of other students too. I’m excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council to help spread awareness of these programs!
