      Future Interests




      San Marino Woman’s Club Scholarship
      One hundred books was my goal. At the beginning of my fifth grade year, my teacher presented our reading assignment: seven books required and twenty-five for a trophy. However, when I received our book log, there were one hundred spaces. I wanted to fill every single one. I read between basketball games when tournaments consumed my weekends. I read in the car and used a book light I insisted on getting for nighttime drives. Achieving my goal and receiving my trophy sparked my passion to constantly challenge myself. This desire to exceed academically followed me throughout my high school career. Since developing severe environmental allergies early on, I endured various treatments to alleviate my reactions, leading to an interest in figuring out what specific proteins were injected into me, what pressure points doctors were prodding at, and how pollens reacted with my skin. This curiosity soon extended beyond my own well-being to broader health-related questions, from environmental factors to cell malfunctions. Therefore, it became a goal of mine to take every science course offered in high school to get as much exposure to the science world that I possibly could. I wanted answers to questions I did not even know existed yet. As a result, I doubled science both my sophomore and junior year, leading to many sleepless weekdays and stressful weekends. However, I thoroughly enjoyed every single class I have taken and believe that the satiation of my quest for knowledge made everything worth it in the end.
