Personal Statement: I'll most likely talk about the robotics team in which I dedicated 25 hours each week for 7 weeks. I was the youngest in the team (sophomore) and the team only lasted for 1 year because the adviser quit even though we won regionals. I am the only member from the original team still going to the school because the others have graduated. I spent the past year working to bring back FRC (A LOT of work and road blocks) for senior year and will be Team Captain/President. While coordinating FRC, I also worked with local middle schools to form a solid robotics program that spans from middle school into high school where students at a younger age are able to participate and the older ones will serve as mentors. FRC has not only inspired me to focus on engineering but has also allowed me to incorporate business and public speaking skills from FBLA as well as computer science that i learned from taking AP Comp Sci.
