What grade are you in?
9th Grade
How many years have you been on the Cyber Cats?
What sub-teams are you on?
 CAD, Field Build, and Imagery
In what ways do you and your sub team help the team?
The CAD team creates the models and blueprints for the robot. In the team I help with whatever anyone needs help with. Field build creates a practice field so our drivers and builders get to test out things. In the team I cut wood, and glue parts. The Imagery team creates the brand. They make all the images you see that relate to the Cyber Cats. In the team I draw things and do any tasks I am given.
What is FIRST to you?
FIRST is to me “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology”. Yet it also means to me an organization that helps young students build valuable skills and find careers, while still being a fun and memorable experience.
What is your favorite memory so far about robotics?
When the power kept going out while trying to work on field build. Everyone would be so happy when it came on, to have it go off again three seconds later.
Why did you decide to join robotics?
I joined robotics because my friend asked me to, and I thought it would be fun. I also joined it because I am/was contemplating engineering as a job. I thought this program would be a great way to get introduced to engineering.
What do you want to learn this season?
I would like to learn CAD, basic wood working skills and Photoshop.
What are three fun facts about yourself?
  1. I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue
  2. My favorite color is blue
  3. I have never broken a bone
