Hello everyone! My name is Sophie Mao, and I live in Charlotte, NC. I am currently a rising junior in high school. I accepted a leadership position at NSTEM to promote STEM education among students. Right now, the demand for workers with a background in STEM is higher than ever. I believe all students should be provided an opportunity to immerse themselves in STEM subjects and that is exactly what NSTEM provides. Throughout my life, I have always had an interest in STEM subjects, particularly math and computer science; however, sometimes looking for opportunities related to these subjects would prove difficult. NSTEM recognizes this and takes the initiative to bring these resources to the students. By accepting the position of Analytics Co-Director, I hope to give more students access to STEM resources to bolster their knowledge.
