When Belton was a child, he loved to visit the zoo as often as he could. His interest in animals and nature has continued to grow as he has grown, leading to his aspiration to become a zoological researcher. His interest in other science fields has grown as well, and Belton has been on his school’s FIRST robotics team for four years, serving three as a team captain. He has also attended the Youth Scholars Program at the University of Maryland and a program at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth.
