I am a nationally ranked chess player.
My main hobby growing up was chess. I’ve been playing since I was nine years old and was on my high school’s varsity chess team since I was ten, and I went on to be captain when I was in 11th grade. I am a nationally ranked chess player and am on the United States Chess Federation top 100 List for girls age 18. I also participated in debate, model UN, soccer, and served as a tour guide for my school. I am also very interested in fashion and makeup and would love to somehow find a way to connect this to my love of coding.
My favorite aspect of the SPIRE Fellows program is the support and community that it provides.
