“Most days at the Club you can find me engaged in the Music Studio or Robotics/STEM programs. The Club has been a constant source of support throughout my journey. During my eight years at the Club I’ve won the BGCA Hank Aaron Scholarship Award, allowing me to purchase STEM materials and equipment to provide sessions for elementary, middle, and high school club members; participated as a teen panelist at Harris Stowe State University’s Spark the Mind Advancing the Agenda for African Americans in STEM event; competed for the nationwide 2019 STEP Ahead Awards and won 1st Place in the high school division, which included an all-inclusive trip to Washington, D.C; and, spoke at several events sharing how the Boys & Girls Clubs has impacted my life. I also received the Joan Ellyn Silber Award for Volunteerism and Leadership!
