Describe your tutoring experience if you have any:
In 8th grade, I was a founding member of the leadership team for the MakerSpace afterschool program for Rocky Run Middle School. Along with team members, we would help middle school students with their engineering and creative projects as well as advise them on improvements.
For two years now, I’ve been part of the BranchOut! STEM Education Program. I volunteered with a team of mentors at the Patrick Henry Family Shelter and James Lee Community Center to mentor young children (usually elementary school level) on STEM through different activities, including using Scratch to teach programming, boats for buoyancy, and the egg drop for the engineering design process. We created curriculums for them to learn and experience in STEM in interesting and hands-on ways.
I also volunteered for our school, including being personal mentors for MUN and to freshmen and helped freshmen families at orientations. These opportunities allowed me to connect to underclassmen in our school and mentor them on general school affairs as well as MUN improvements.
