Bio

I was inspired to pursue computer science by my high school computer science instructor and mentors of my robotics team, the Fernbank LINKS. One of my most exciting moments in being a part of the robotics team was participating in the annual Georgia BEST (Boosting, Engineering, Science and Technology) Robotics competition and winning first place in both the Robot Performance and BEST Award categories during the 2011-2012 season. During high school I also participated in numerous summer programs including the Spelman College Computer and Robotics Education (CARE) Camp and the Georgia Tech Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC) ICE Scribbler. After working on programming a Four-Legged Robot using Alice, I was asked back to volunteer for the CARE Camp. I am currently attending Wesleyan College and pursuing a self-designed major in Integrated Digital Media. I currently serve as the Ambassador for the Lane Center which is the community service organization on campus, president of the French Club, a member of Wesleyan Disciples our Christian organization and a Mary Knox McNeil scholar. My goal is to start a mentoring program focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for elementary and middle school students.
