I am currently a senior at the New York Harbor School. Here I am working on my GIS certification. Although I do not intend on further pursuing GIS work in the future I am still working towards finishing the curriculum. 
    I have competed in school symposiums and the Urban Barcode project for my project on algae genetics during my sophmore year. I had 2 partners working with me on the project and working with them helped me develop group and researching skills. I learned how to be part of a successful group as we were able to win 1st in the school symposium. Now I am on the third book of the GIS curriculum working on that after I decided to move on from the research project.
