YES! Intern

My name is Melissa and I go to high school in Washington, D.C. In the past four quarters of school I have made the honor roll and received the privilege to go on field trips while the other students had to stay in school. I like to read, mainly anime, horror, and fantasy books. I also like to play soccer and basketball.

What I wish to gain from the YES! program is the amazing experience to work with scientists and also the opportunity to develop great communication skills. Both of my parents are Salvadoran. I admire my mom and grandma because they are really hard-working people. I see myself in five years finishing college and finding a good job.
