I am a graduate of the IB Diploma Programme at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. I am planning to study Naval Engineering in college and will be attending Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey this fall. Outside of school, I play and coach volleyball. I was a four-year varsity starter for my high school, Myers Park High School, and played nationally for my club, Carolina Juniors. I am excited to continue my volleyball career by playing collegiately while at Stevens. Additionally, I enjoy building and launching model rockets. I founded the club Rocket Girls - Ladies Who Launch at my school, a club devoted to empowering and encouraging women to pursue coursework and careers in STEM. I plan to continue my passion for promoting women in STEM throughout my time at Stevens and in my future career.
