Tell us about yourself
I am a 17-year-old senior at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA. For two years in middle school, I participated in GEMS. In high school, I participated in the JSHS. I’m a committed researcher who is interested in the areas of virology and neuroscience. In my free time, I play basketball and lacrosse. I am also an avid guitar player and singer. My favorite classes are biotechnology research and neurobiology. This year in the Council, I hope to increase STEM educational access for all students throughout the nation while enhancing leadership and communication skills
