What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?

Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS)

What are you doing now?

I am a Senior at Interlake High School in Bellevue, WA. I have deep passion in the areas of technology and innovation. I’ve spent the last 10 months developing a low-cost end-to-end Precision Agriculture solution which has allowed me to combine knowledge of programming, data-science, bio-chemistry, engineering, and environmental science.

What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?

My time at National JSHS was filled with scientific curiosity, budding friendships with students from other states, facing questions from the judges and unforgettable field-trips. I will always look back on the time spent in San Diego and cherish its amazing experiences.

Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?

I would like to network with other High School and college STEM students, gain confidence in my leadership skills, take responsibility and make a positive contribution to the group.
