I am a sophomore and a proud Texan, born and raised in Brownsville, just north of the U.S.-Mexico border. As a chess player, new debater and student at a medical high school, I am passionate about learning new things. In my free time, I love to read and bake things with way too many calories!

My HERlead Project: STEM QUEENS

I will host lessons for middle school girls on the game of chess, and encourage them to draw their own connections between the game and STEM careers in my HERlead Project. STEM Queens will also offer mentorship from female experts in STEM fields in order to give students the tools to obtain their high school degree and help them see the opportunities available to them.
