Apart from band, I am involved with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life team at my school, as well as debate, FBLA, DECA, and the tennis team! I love listening to artists and bands like the Beatles, Green Day and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Modern chill rock and 80’s music are some of my favorite types of music I have recently delved into. My favorite TV shows are The Office, Parks and Recreation, and The Good Place.
I am involved with the TRIP Initiative because I have a passion for research. Thus far, I have been involved with the AP Research program, in which one largely does social science research and data analysis due to the lack of lab availability opportunities. However, I was eager to find an opportunity where I can expand on my research skills into a scientific lab-based setting. I think that applying science is our chance to build a sustainable future for our planet and I am intrigued by the vast possibilities. I am currently researching public perception of artificial intelligence; I’m trying to see if I can correlate a level of public knowledge of AI with the likelihood of the coming of a theory known as the Technological Singularity, which, as described by computer scientist Ray Kurzweil, is when technological intelligence merges with human intelligence. I am excited to be able to learn more about lab-based science and I value this opportunity of being able to experiment with different ideas and research projects in order to foster academic growth. I hope to be able to go into lab-based sciences as a career ( I know it’s super broad, but hopefully this program will help me narrow that down)!
