What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
Gains in the Education of Math and Science (GEMS)
What are you doing now?
I am currently in the 11th grade member of my school’s DECA team and Prom Committee. My ideal future plans in academics/STEM field is to major in Pre-Med in college in order to fulfill my aspiration of becoming an obstetrician gynecologist.
What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?
The best things about GEMS is how interactive the lessons were. Students were able to learn in a real lab with science equipment and use that equipment to properly understand topics in the STEM field. GEMS also provided a great opportunity to learn new topics every day using hands-on techniques.
Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?
I am excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council because it is an opportunity that will continue to spark my interest in the STEM field. This Leadership Council will not only be beneficial unto myself, but I have the opportunity to inspire future young students to seek more interest into AEOP programs and advance their education in the STEM field.
