I am a junior from Whippany, New Jersey. I love math and computer science, and I hope to bridge the gender gap in these fields through media and journalism. I am currently the editor-in-chief of my school’s newspaper, and I run a female empowerment blog called Project GirlSpire. I also served as the state historian for Future Business Leaders of America and was a New Jersey Governor’s STEM Scholar.

My HERlead Project: Equalize It!

My project will equalize the gender gap in STEM by challenging the stereotype that “mathematics is for boys” by offering an after-school program for fourth and fifth grade girls of color in low-income cities.
