bao's Story

My passion is biology.

Growing up, my family had many health situations in which I found an interest. I have always been curious to know why our bodies respond to different diseases and physical damages. Not too long after I discovered my interest, I broke my left arm. Although I had to endure pain during a 3 week recovery period, this incident only enhanced my curiosity. When I was 5-years-old I asked questions such as "what is happening in there?" or "how is my body doing this?" However, it was not until middle school when I took my first Pre-Biology class that I realized how much I enjoyed science.

A Note from Mr. Shah, bao's Mentor

The way that Bao approaches problems or challenges, demonstrates to me that he has a hunger to learn and the determination to succeed in whatever he does. However, he is limited by his access and circumstances, which is why an excellent program is ideal to connect him to the educational opportunities that will best take advantage of his abilities. His love for the human biology and deep inquisitiveness about how the human body works makes him an ideal candidate for the National Teen Leadership Program.

National Teen Leadership Program

This upcoming July, I will be attending the National Teen Leadership Program at Sacramento State University. I am particularly excited because I have never attended any program specifically for leadership and I'm curious about what activities we'll be doing. Ultimately, I hope this program will fortify my leadership skills that will help me in college and beyond.

Success! Mr. Shah helped bao raise $539
