What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
Words of Advice?
Just do it. With risk can come great reward. It is important to keep challenging yourself with new experiences so you continue to grow. When I stepped out and accepted unexpected challenges, I learned new things about myself, and you will too.
Best Things about the Program?
I liked how we had the ability to create something that will benefit our community. I was able to be creative and apply things I had learned in class to a real world problem. I was also able to learn to work better as a team and by expand my skills as a leader and team member. Teamwork is so important and can be difficult, but I learned that everyone has strengths and weaknesses. I was able to meet many students from across the country and now consider them friends.
How Participating in AEOP Inspired You to Advance in the STEM Field?
I was already interested in STEM. However, participating in AEOP showed me how STEM changes the world and I gained a deeper understanding for what STEM really is. I think programs like this are important for students because it shows us that you do not have to be a genius — If you like to be challenged and solve problems, you can find a fitting STEM career.
I love to read books about mystery, crime, or profiling and I write books.
