She has attended many science fairs, including Concept Schools science and engineering fair(CONSEF), and the North Eastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair(NEOSEF) Intel ISEF, and ISWEEEP. Jalicia takes up electronics and engineering in each fair and has taken home the gold in all. Taking part in STEM conferences, Science Fairs and seminars allowed her to interact with scientists whom she aspires to be like . Last year she was given the opportunity to participate in two of the largest science fairs in the world, Intel ISEF and ISWEEEP for designing a medical device to monitor symptoms of Nocturnal Glycemic conditions in diabetics. This aided her development of problem solving, time management and processing skills. This helped her realize the types of problems that engineers face.
