As a high school junior, I'm heavily involved in my school's emerging STEM program, especially the robotics team. In the future, I hope to go into biomedical engineering and enable people to receive artificial organ transplants. I enjoy conducting research to try and solve problems like osteoarthritis. When I'm not in class or at the lab, you can find me writing poetry, reading a novel, or watching a sunset. One of my favorite quotes is, "And though she be but little, she is fierce." Though it was originally a Shakespearean insult, I believe that it can also serve as a reminder that, though someone might be small or in a bad position, they can still accomplish great things!
Ruth Bader Ginsberg, or "Notorious RBG" as she has been coined by Shana Knizhnik, was an American icon of epic proportions. As remembered by the American Bar Association, "It is undeniable that the late Justice Ginsburg transformed the legal profession, the Supreme Court, and the fabric of American society through her tireless advocacy for gender equity. She was a brilliant legal scholar who left a mark on American jurisprudence both in her role on the Court and as an advocate." NSHSS hopes to honor the blazing legacy of "Notorious RBG" by awarding ten (10) applicants with $1,000 each for their efforts to embody the spirit of RBG within their own communities.
