As Treasurer of eSports I hosted events and fundraisers, such as bake sales and Skype calls with Video Game Developers. I am currently the president of eSports and intend to host tournaments, events, and fundraisers, as well as encourage memebrs to learn coding, video game art, and video game history. Within eSports, there is a sub club for the Technology Student Association (TSA) for which I am a member, competitor, and officer. My first year I worked as a treasurer, organizing financial details of the fieldtrip, scheduling, and raising money through fundraising and gathering donations. I competed in Video Game Design (finalist), Webmaster, Fashion Design, and Chapter Team. Currently I am the Vice President of our TSA chapter and will be competing in Video Game Design, Webmaster, Coding, Software Design, and Chapter Team.

I have been a memebr of the Thespian Honors Society since my freshman year, and became a member as a result of working over a hundred hours each school year in Perfroming Arts Clubs event, both as a performer and a Crew Member. I am a member of Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honors Society). In Mu Alpha Theta we compete in district math competitions, and do math practices every Monday. I am currently a member of Rho Khappa (History Honors Society) where we discuss historical events and engage in historical and political debate.
Gay Straight Alliance
Treasurer (2016-2017), Secretary (2017-2018), Member (2015-2019).
As an officer for GSA I helped create a safe, welcoming environment for LGBT students, and LGBT Allies, as well as give presentations educating members about gender and sexuality diversity. I helped members who messaged me looking for advice about coming out, family, and school situations. I also attended various leaderhip seminars regarding LGBT safety and education and helped to host the first ever MAST Academy pride week. As a member I engage in topical LGBT discussions, as well as give support to my fellow members.
Technology Student Association
The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a nationwide organization which enhances personal development, leadership, and career opportunities in STEM, whereby members apply and integrate these concepts through intracurricular activities, competitions, and related programs. Members compete in local, state, and national competition for various STEM-related fields. Some of the competitions which I participated in were Video Game Design, Fashion Design, Webmaster, and, as my chapter’s treasurer, Chapter Team.

Video Game Design:
As our project, we developed a simple snowboarding video game called Alps Halfpipe. This game got us to the finals for Video Game Design in our State competition. Created in C# in Unity, Alps Halfpipe is a casual and engaging snowboarding game intended for people of all ages who desire to experience the thrill and challenge of snowboarding. The game is meant to entertain its players with casual snowboarding fun. Alps Halfpipe, is a snowboarding game in which players snowboard down the Alps, avoiding obstacles, and make it to the finish line. In order to reach the bottom, players must avoid obstacles, such as trees and rocks.
For our project, we created a website for a fictional artificial intelligence company called Avalon. The company was meant to imitate a learning and training platform that recommends a custom curriculum based on a myriad of personalized questions and, if applicable, previously taken courses using a recurrent neural network (RNN) for natural language processing (NLP). Avalon would act as a teaching assistant, working alongside teachers and trainers to individually optimize education for students. On our website we also broke down the different STEM classes and clubs available at our school. To see the full project click here
In order to determine if Hydrogen cars would be a worthy opponent to the gasoline-powered cars of our present, my partner, Diana Espindola, and I performed a simple electrolysis project, “Volts-Wagon”, which we presented at the 2018 Miami-Dade County Science Fair. Our goal was to determine if the rate that electrolysis produces hydrogen would be sufficient to power a car. We built a machine which sends an electric charge from a nine-volt battery through a water, sodium hydroxide solution to split the oxygen and hydrogen and fill the appropriate balloons. We also measured the impact of factors, such as sodium hydroxide, to maximize the efficiency of the process.

With the project, we won first place at the Miami-Dade County Science Fair 2018 in the category of engineering. We also received recognition from the Yale Science and Engineering Association Inc for Most Outstanding Exhibit in Chemistry. Our Cornell Collab Space page for the project was the featured project for the month of July, 2018.
