Statement: As a researcher in the field of chemistry, I became a member of the ACS as an attendee and I participated in science outreach programs during my tenure as an undergraduate student. This effort continued throughout graduate school, where I worked closely with our Program Director for Education and Outreach at Penn State University to help coordinate and present at multiple MRSEC (Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers) events. Since relocating to the Philadelphia region, I became aware that my passion align with the goals of the ACS Philadelphia Local Section. I would to like to continue introducing and encouraging young brilliant minds towards STEM programs and to become more involved in the ACS. If elected to a leadership position, I look forward to working with everyone towards advancing and acting on the ideas and plans of the local Section.
