BIOGRAPHY

Stephanie has been in the STEM Leadership Program for 5 years, dedicating her high school career to leadership and enrichment opportunities, such as being Visual Design Director for the SLI Communications Team and Co-Designer of the SLI Graduates Website. Her interest for the STEM subjects can be seen through the rigorous STEM related courses she takes in school and her participation in extracurricular coding hackathons. Stephanie has participated for 3 years in Tech Challenge and Exploravision, winning honorable mentions for two of her projects. In addition to her STEM interests, Stephanie's passion for the arts can be seen in her investment to visual design for her Technovation semi-finalist app, Clover, and various marketing internships; where she demonstrates determination to bringing the arts into STEM.

 

Stephanie has also contributed 80+ community service hours to her local church as an assistant teacher and team leader. Getting involved in the STEM community is also just as important to her, volunteering as a mentor and TA for the past 2 years. In her free time, she enjoys exploring

new places, painting, and playing with her two cats.

The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (49ers SLI) provides multi-year, year-round academic support, STEM enrichment, skills training, and leadership opportunities to students in middle and high school. Students, who are with the program for six years from 7th through 12th grade, commit annually to 300+ hours of program learning time in addition to their typical school hours. By cultivating student mastery in STEM subjects and in key skill areas, the program prepares students for college and empowers them to pursue their passions; so that they may become the well-rounded leaders of the future. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is made possible by the strong partnership between Silicon Valley Education Foundation, 49ers Foundation, Chevron, and the Santa Clara Unified School District.
