Bio

Sarah is a junior at The Founders Academy Public Charter School. She has pursued her interest in computer science by taking all of her school's most advanced computer science courses (including AP Computer Science Principles and AP Computer Science A) and attending various computer science seminars and hackathons. Sarah is currently learning Python programming and is a member of the FIRST Tech Challenge club. One of Sarah's newfound passions is teaching and mentoring. In the spring of 2019, she volunteered at the Center for New Americans in Manchester, NH to teach coding to inner-city and recent immigrant girls. She also participated in the UNH EPIC Youth Leader in Computing program. In the summer of 2019, Sarah developed and co-lead an AspireIT-funded grant to run the summer program, App DevelopHer, at Girls Inc. of NH’s Young Women’s Leadership Program. App DevelopHer taught girls grades 6-12 mobile app development and fundamental programming skills using MIT’s App Inventor platform. Sarah plans to apply for another AspireIT grant this year. In the future, Sarah hopes to attend college and obtain a degree in computer science. She is primarily interested in software development, artificial intelligence, graphic design, music engineering, and bioengineering. Sarah is also a competitive swimmer and an alto saxophonist.
