Daena Lopez

I feel I should be selected to participate in this program because I am really interested in Engineering and technology. My favorite subjects are science and math because I like to be challenged. When I went to Cal State Long Beach last year for "Engineering Girls @ the Beach" day, I enjoyed studying and learning about robotics. We even watched a video about a women whose husband couldn’t walk. She built a robot to help her husband because he couldn’t do anything. This really got me interested so now I want to be a architect or some sort of engineer. I should be selected because I am responsible, dedicated, and smart. I am always researching information on the internet about robots and science, and I know that I will benefit from being in this program.
