What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science (GEMS)
What are you doing now?
This year I will be in 12th grade looking to major in Computer Software Engineering.
What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?
Some of the best things about both participating and near-peer mentoring in the GEMS programs were the many different types of activities and experiments we would work on within different STEM fields, from programming robots, learning how to suture, and even dissections of sharks.
Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?
Ever since my first year of mentoring in the GEMS program in San Antonio, I have wished to aid in the promotion of AEOP programs to those in suburban schools, and I feel this organization will help aid me in just that, so for that I’m extremely thankful and excited!
