I wanted to share what I learned at MIT Launch with my school and bring entrepreneurship to my fellow schoolmates across all grade levels. Recruiting my fellow club leaders, Fatuma Omar & Elena Wagenmans, we have a record number of student participants capped at 80 students with a waiting list. I work on curriculum and present every Thursday as they formed a dozen different teams, each forming their own companies.Lakeside LaunchX Club President/Founder
We are fortunate enough to have a few 3D printers in our compsci classroom. However with a change in staff, these resources were to be put in storage. I petitioned my school to create a Maker Space, which I help maintain. Additionally I formed a Maker Club, raising funds (pics below) to help fund these efforts.Converting an old XBox360 Kinect to attach to my MacBook to Scan/Render my French Teacher in 3D...
I often enjoy playing the saxophone and being part of Lakeside's Jazz Band in the past. I auditioned and qualified into this highly exclusive band my senior year. Unfortunately, the only session of Honors Calc-Based Physics conflicts with the Lakeside Jazz Band schedule. However to hear some of my works, please listen below...Jazz Band | Alto Sax

Three years in a row, my videos were chosen as the only high school video entries at the college videos level educator's pavilion and were displayed during the prestigious SIGGRAPH convention in California. Additionally I was selected for the Pioneer Mentoring Program multiple years in a row.Video Presenter | Siggraph Pioneer Mentoring
After a straight 48 hours of scrambling to form teams, pivoting and nonstop coding (with occasional naps under our table), our small team of 3 developed a self-teaching solution to train students the basics of computing which I later taught/delivered to the students of Hamomi Children's Centre in the Kangemi Slums of Nairobi, Kenya. It is still being used there today!HackGenY

The Maker Community has always been a big part of my life where I share/present my ideas with others. This is also a great way to learn and meet like minded students and professionals! I often use Maker Events for enlightenment, to test the waters on new ideas and foster connections with the community, whether it's a smaller or a bigger event!Maker Faires Exhibitor
The Puget Sound Computer Science Teachers Association (PSCSTA) Hackathons gave me a unique perspective on teamwork as we all had to share my one laptop with no internet connectivity allowed, finishing in the Top Ten category. One thing I highly recommend when you have to work 'offline' (or have really crappy wifi) is leveraging DocSets for any number of programming languages and libraries. One of my favorite tools for managing DocSets is Dash, though there are others for different platforms, such as Velocity and Zeal. Hackathons are great opportunities to collaborate as a team.PSCSTA Hackathons
