Hello! My name is Abby Clark, and I go to Manheim Township High School in Lancaster, PA. I decided to join the TRIP Initiative due to my passion for science, particularly Chemistry and Biology. My favorite experiences in my scientific journey have been observing medical procedures and doing labs in which I was given a goal but no procedure, and I would have to determine the best way to tackle the lab. Both problem-solving and analyzing experimental results captivate me, which is why TRIP is so exciting to me. In the future I plan to further pursue cancer research to find more effective and quicker cures for cancer.
On another note, I have been a cross country runner since the seventh grade and will continue running this fall as a senior. During the spring I continue to run as a Girls on the Run coach, which is very fun, as I coach 3rd and 4th graders who are very silly and energetic. I am also a part of my school’s performing arts program because I absolutely love theatre, and I am the Vice President of our Interact Club. An interesting fact about me is that I've kind of lived all over the place; I've lived in Minnesota, Illinois, Arkansas, China, and now Pennsylvania. I am very excited to find out where I will end up next for college!
