Hi! My name is Sara Dedhia and I am a sophomore at Methacton High School. My favorite subjects are, you guessed it, science and math. I especially enjoy chemistry as much of it is math-based! Through my school, I take part in FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America), Science Fair, Key Club, and Girls Who Code. As for sports, I play tennis for my school team in fall and enjoy running in my free time, I even ran my first half-marathon last year! Outside of school, I am an assistant dance teacher and really enjoy dancing, I love reading various genres of books, and adore traveling with my family to see new places and experience different cultures. One of my goals is to visit all seven continents, and so far I have been to Europe, Asia, and North America. Additionally, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and watching Netflix. Some of my favorite shows are Friends, the Office, and Gilmore Girls.
I am very excited to be a part of the TRIP program and learn new techniques and skills, such as data analysis and communication/presentation skills, that can aid me throughout my lifetime. In the future I aspire to pursue a career in the medical field, so being a part of TRIP will give me insight into the research side of the sciences by giving me the opportunity to work in a lab and create my own project design using fruit flies, with which I can mimic certain behaviors pertaining to humans and relate it to clinical research. I am also excited to create long lasting relationships with people which I share similar interests and passions with. Within these last few weeks we’ve learned how to micropipette, make grape plates, differentiate the different parts of the fruit fly life cycle, and sort male and female flies. It’s only been two weeks and I can’t wait to learn more!
