I have a passion for gaming such as Super Smash Brothers Melee and would like to be an active competitor one day. I am learning to play chess from online chess sites. I enjoy philosophy and making up hypothetical situations. I played the flute in the school band for about 5 years and have volunteered at the library. I am in the Thriving Elements program because I believe it is a good way to help me to towards pursuing a STEM career. In school, no one tells you how to get into any kind of career, much less a STEM one, however, the Thriving Elements offers help for my goals which sparked my interest.
