Bio

Growing up, Bailee was always the loud child that was continuously asking questions and finding new ways to accomplish things. She channeled this curiosity into exploring different outlets within the tech scene and encouraging others to do the same. She currently attends Dixie SUCCESS Academy as a Senior who spends her time pursuing graphic design, robotics, and programming. Over the summer she taught at tech camps through Dixie State University, exposing youth to everything from soldering to photoshop to circuits. She currently works as a graphic designer for a 100% teen ran company called TeenMade, whose services are hired out to companies across the globe. Bailee serves as the VP of Recruitment for her county’s 4-H teen council, and has been an active member and leader in various programming clubs and robotics teams through 4-H since she was 12. Indeed she may say that 4-H was where she found her passion for technology. After receiving a grant through Utah STEM action center, Bailee was able to start the FTC robotics team 9761, the PrestidigiTaters. Their rookie year, they won the INSPIRE award, becoming the first Utah FTC team to win the top award at the Utah State Competition and advance to West Super Regionals in the Bay Area. Now in their second season, she contributes to the team as a programmer and engineer, graphic designer, and secretary. To give back to the community that has given her so many opportunities and support, she has given countless robotics demonstrations and presentations to youth, adults, and companies in Southern Utah. She makes it a priority in her life to not only give back and serve, but to promote others (especially girls) to be fearless in their pursuit of technology and provide exposure to a wide variety of outlets within technology. Bailee is on track to graduate from high school with an Associate's Degree, and wishes to continue her education through Utah State University as she pursues a degree in Graphic Design with a minor in Psychology.
