Mentoring students of color through their AP/Honors/CE upper level courses.

Major: Biochemistry

Project: I want to create a mentorship program that guides students of color throughout their experience in upper-level AP/Honors/CE courses in high schools.

Inspiration: My experience in these courses inspired my Puksta project because I went to a very diverse high school however, the upper-level courses I was in did not reflect the diversity of the school I went to.

Future Goals: My main goal is to encourage students to challenge themselves and make them realize that they have a support system they can go to if they ever need it.
