Junior– Newbury Park High School
Ever since she experimented with snails in elementary school, Maya has been in love with science. Chemistry is her favorite subject because she considers it as the foundational platform to integrate different scientific disciplines. She is president of Health Occupational Students of America, member of Science Olympiad, and was publicist of Computer Programming Unlimited. Her favorite place is Westminster Free Clinic, where she is fortunate to be a medical intern. She is thankful for her family, her chemistry teacher Ms. O’Neill, and the community she has found at Westminster Free Clinic. Maya hopes to use her knowledge in science to help others. She also plays tennis and sings in choir for Newbury Park High School.
