As a freshman in high school I took a struggling tennis team, and lead them to playoffs as a junior and to the championships as a senior. As a senior in high school I also participated in the ACE Mentor Program. There I worked with a team of engineers and architects to design a community center in Wyandanch, NY and presented the final product to the ACE Mentor Programs Board of Directors in New York City. As a freshman at Adelphi University I joined an Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics Lab where I have built a magneto-optical trap. We are attempting to coherently control photo-assisted collisions between atoms with rapidly frequency-chirped laser light. Currently under review is our paper in regards to developing the frequency-chirped laser light. In the summer of 2014 I received the Horace McDonell Fellowship, which is a prestigious grant at Adelphi offered to less than ten students, that fully funded my research which I continue to this day. I am also a straight A student who works on campus as a physics tutor and a recitation instructor. Foremost, I became a member of the Adelphi SPS Chapter during my very first semester. As the Treasurer of the chapter during my sophomore year I was one of the officers that helped organize the events that have lead to our chapter being recognized as a distinguished chapter. I began this year as the President of the Adelphi SPS Chapter. One of the major events that I am initiating on campus is to collaborate with other science based organizations at Adelphi create a Science Week consisting of visiting lecturers from various fields and activities to encourage participation from non-science majors. I am proud to be the President of Adelphi's Chapter of SPS because being in this leadership role has helped me to make a difference on my campus.
