How Are You?

I am currently chasing my dream and achieving my goals on my path to medicine. Working on my master’s in Neuroscience at the Georgia State University. After which I will pursue my MD or nursing degree. I cannot complain about the position I have worked to achieve thus far.

What Has Your STEAMsport Experience Been Like?

I vividly remember my journey in the STEAMsport program where I found an outsource to let my creative juices flourish. Starting in FLL and Beginner Level Computer Programming, I started to gain skills and experiences that I just could not get at school. In these modern times, everything is run on computers or AI, and learning it from a young age definitely put me in a better position. My connections and skills gained led me to join different organizations that allowed me to travel to multiple cities and acquire awards/scholarships.

This is the step forward you need to take, just go and do it!

What did you learn with us and has it been beneficial?

During my tenure community service and development was a monumental life acquired skill. Understanding the potential of people no matter their socioeconomic background can really motivate people to pursue their dreams and know that anything is possible.

What was the most important thing you gained on a personal level (development, relationship, community, etc.) from participating with us?

I gained lots of friendships, mentorships, and networking skills from my participation

When you imagine yourself before starting STEAMsport, Inc, what’s different between that version of you and the current version?

Before STEAMsport I was very reserved and not very expressive of my creativity and ambitions. Even though there is nothing wrong with being reserved but in this world, you must show your best attributes and make something of yourself.

Describe your most fun experience with us.

Winning Third place in FLL and going onto the State competition in only the 8th grade and it was my first year in the program. This accomplishment fueled my passion for the rest of the program leading to numerous other experiences

If you could talk to yourself just before and after STEAMsport, Inc. , what is one thing you would say?

This is the step forward you need to take, just go and do it!

What words of encouragement do you have for future STEAMsport students?

Do not allow the worldview to stop you from chasing your passion and dreams in STEAM no matter your socioeconomic status or the pigmentation of your skin.
