“I’m a very curious person. I like to understand why things happen. That’s what I love about science - it gives me the space to seek answers to my questions. The best part is that every time I find the answer to one question, it leads to a brand new one. I get to go from “What’s that?” to “What does that mean?”, and “What can that lead to?”. It’s never-ending! My goal is to use the skills and knowledge I’m gaining in the science world to improve the lives of millions of people in the future.”

“My favorite thing about science is how deeply entrenched it is in the world around us. It’s literally everywhere, from the way we tie our shoelaces to how we’re able to send real people into space. The possibilities are endless and there is so much to learn. This year, I’m taking all three science courses at school. My goal is to carve out my own path in science and be a representative role model for young black people who choose this path after me.”
