As I begin my graduate studies, I am looking to explore ways I can engage in public outreach, broaden accessibility to science, and advocate for and advance systemic change towards equity and inclusivity in physics.
I volunteered as an instructor and program developer for the Space Explorers program with the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at UChicago for two years during my undergraduate studies. This program focuses on providing hands-on experience with physics for under-represented minorities in high school. As part of the Space Explorers program, I developed hands-on projects for the students that focused on growing their familiarity and confidence in STEM. I also volunteered during the Summer and Winter Institutes at the University of Chicago and Fermilab, helping the students realize and present their projects.
I volunteered as an instructor at @rtifice for part of my first and second years at UChicago, teaching computer science and technology concepts to elementary school students in the South Side Chicago area.
