Ever since I first became a freshman at the University of Colorado Denver, I knew I wanted to be a physics major. I was supremely lucky to have an excellent physics teacher in my high school who inspired a passion for the subject in me. Once I began to attend college, I was fortunate to take a chance on some posters I had seen advertising SPS meetings, and decided to check them out. The students were so welcoming and knowledgeable, and I knew I was in the right place.
Now I am a junior, and president of my SPS chapter. I am proud to be a student at CU Denver, and proud to be a member of SPS. I want to share that passion with all of the students in my school and my zone. As a double major in physics and the French language, and with many outside interests that include participating in community events and the arts, I believe I can bring a unique perspective to those around me, and I believe in being open and supportive. My high school physics teacher was essential to directing me to this path, and I am planning on entering a PhD program after completing my bachelor's. Hopefully someday I will have the opportunity to inspire a young student.
When the APS March Meeting was cancelled in Denver, I worked with my fellow SPS chapter in Denver to provide resources, social events, and hold informal presentations. Experiences such as this have increased my network of professional contacts, which in turn allow me to connect students and members in my own community to the greater physics community. These connections have been strengthened from when I attended CUWiP 2019 as well as the APS April Meeting 2019, and I look forward to participating in the physics community at every opportunity.
