Hello! I'm an insatiably curious student, driven innovator, and creative humanist. My high school years have been full of academics, MUN, volunteer work as an FLL Coach, working as an assistant manager, competitive soccer, Jazz Band, and more! However, my most impactful experience has been as the founder of CodeX Education, a company that provides coding and robotics classes to younger students online and in-person at local schools. I've designed and constantly improved our curriculum, trained a team of high school instructors, and coordinated with school administrators. We've taught over 300 students in our classes STEM skills, and have inspired many of them to continue to explore coding and robotics. I also partnered CodeX with a nonprofit, Chicago Youth Programs, to provide free classes to their youth. My experience with CodeX Education has shown me the power of teaching and has inspired me to continue to leverage my talents, resources, and skills to improve education. I'm very excited to be applying to college, but like many students, I'm wary of the large tuition costs. I hope you will consider me for a scholarship, so I can pursue a great education and share that knowledge with others.

One of my goals in life is to use math, problem solving, and science to improve others' quality of life. I want to do this by majoring in biomedical engineering by getting a four-year degree and then continuing on to get my master’s degree. Specifically, I want to specialize in neuroengineering because I am fascinated by how the human mind functions. After obtaining these degrees my goal is to do research regarding neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. I want to improve the human condition by helping develop solutions to neurodegenerative illnesses.

Hey there! Nice to meet you. I'm Simona. I'm a first-generation, sixteen year old girl with big aspirations. When I grow older, I'd love to become a high school Language Arts teacher. I value Language Arts and English above all other potential subjects since they involve a little bit of everything. You can find mathematics, history, philosophy and so much more when you pick up a book. This versatility has developed such a bond with me -- since I am quite a versatile person as well. I'm in love with learning about anything I can get my hands on; which is why I would love to teach my students everything as well through these means. I find a true passion in teaching others. Pre-Covid, I had been a student teacher for younger children's karate classes. The one thing I loved most from doing that was seeing the spark in the children's eyes when something clicked, and they finally understood the concept I was teaching them. Seeing them get all jovial really warmed my heart. I hope to spend the rest of my life sharing those kinds of moments with my students. To add, I plan to also pursue a degree in Journalism and Broadcasting. I want to share my untold stories with the world while learning something new every day. I aspire to advocate for an equal, higher education for all; despite the individual's race, sexuality, gender, or social class. Education and learning are both factors in our nature as humans -- no person should ever be deprived of their natural-born right to education. "Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom." - Oprah Winfrey
