Place of birth:
Lindblom Math and Science Academy High School
I am currently in a high school that specializes in math and science. Therefore, more rigorous math and science courses are offered. So, I challenge myself to the toughest ones, like AP Physics or AP Calculus. I have found that Biology is my favorite subject, so I am preparing myself to study Biology in college.
I have taken AP Biology and Honors Biology, and I am planning on taking Biotechnology next year along with AP Chemistry. I want to do research in college that is biology-related. So, I am using all of my time before college to prepare for that research. I am taking hard math and science classes, and I am gaining lab experience at the same time.
Why would you recommend exploring careers in science and technology to other Latina girls?
You should explore careers wherever you want because this is how you find what you love doing, by fully informing yourself of your options. You should not be held back by other people thinking you are not apt; never hold your self back.
Careers in science and technology just happen to be among the best, and I am a little biased here. But, if you find yourself not fitting in, good. And if you need a community, NCWIT girls are here for you as girls of all ethnic backgrounds to support you.
