YES! Intern

My name is Joanne and I am from Virginia. I am a senior in high school. My favorite subject is chemistry, because last year I learned about the science of chemical reactions at a more in-depth level than I had the previous year.

 I’m thinking about majoring in biology in college, because I’ve always had an interest in living organisms and I hope that my internship at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History will help me explore more about that field. I am excited about natural science, because there is an infinite amount of things waiting to be discovered by us. I hope to explore my passion for science through the YES! program before I start applying to colleges. I also hope to experience sharing my knowledge of science with other children who have also developed a curiosity for how organisms live.
