Kaelynn thanked the Club for the certificate and $100 scholarship check.  “During my 4 years at Maple Point Middle School, I have dabbled in a few extracurricular activities such as art, debate club, and S.T.E.M.  The ways I have been involved in art is through art club and a few pieces of my art through my art classes have made it to district art shows.  Also, another form of art that I have participated in is through music.  In music, I played bass for 3 years, and flute for nearly 5 years.

While debate club was still an option in 5-6 grade for Maple Point Middle School where I was a member.  In addition, I was also involved with S.T.E.M.  S.T.E.M is the curriculum that focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. In efforts, just last year, I was recognized by AAUW Makefield Area Branch.  AAUW is an association where women and men advocate for equality for women and girls, and girls who excel in math and science are recognized annually for their amazing efforts in their academics. 

My aspirations for life consist of pursuing my dream of taking on the occupation of a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) Physician, going on a cross-country road trip to explore our Nation’s treasures, and living life to the fullest at all times. 

To wrap it all up, if I could give any advice to a student who is in a rough patch with their academics, remember to breathe and take a second look, the most obvious solutions are usually the ones that fly right over your head.
