Briefly introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for BranchOut!:
I am currently a 9th grader named Grace Kang who goes to TJHSST. I'm interested in becoming a mentor for Branch Out! because when I went to BranchOut! last year, I was able to have a very fun time. It was very fun because watching the students face's of excitement for learning is very satisfying and also I was able to become friends with the students and the other mentors. During my experience with BranchOut! last year, there were definitely parts that the students liked, for example, the interactive experiments and competitions, and parts that the students didn't enjoy that much, for example, the warm-ups. I wish to do BranchOut! this year so that I can make it even more fun to learn experience for the students by trying to make the activities that the students thought were uninteresting into something more interactive while still maintaining the same content. Seeing the students happy make me feel enjoyment and satisfaction because by seeing them excited, I know that I taught them something, and they are more willing to learn. Though, this year's BranchOut! will definitely have different problems occurring than last year, I also hope to learn how to adapt to these problems more quickly so that the students will have more time for fun activities.
