Student Name 1

I am a senior at Spackenkill High School in Poughkeepsie, NY where I am part of our school's three-year Science Research course. In my junior year, I conducted environmental research in the Silk Lab at Tufts University, testing the plant Lunaria’s reflective and insulative properties to slow the melting of ice. Throughout high school, Alex and I competed in the Science Olympiad event Water Quality where we placed first in Regionals. I have swum competitively and played violin for 12 years. This fall I will be attending the Honors Program at Northeastern with a combined major in Environmental Engineering and Health Science.
