Josie is a pre-law student, and on-campus, she works as a peer tutor. Most notably, she is a spokesperson for the Lupus Foundation of America. Since she was diagnosed with lupus at 15, she has filmed a public service announcement and shot a print ad campaign to raise awareness about lupus across the United States. She also hosted the Lupus Foundation of America's annual gala where over $35,000 were raised for pediatric lupus research. Josie also competes in the Miss America Organization, where she uses her personal platform to bring awareness to all invisible illnesses throughout the state of New Hampshire. "I have truly appreciated my involvement in NSHSS because I have had opportunities to attend events outside of typical high school or college events. Getting the chance to meet like-minded people is always a great experience. During my senior year of high school, I won the Robert Shepherd Leadership Award. This scholarship went directly towards my tuition statement, and it was helpful to earn a scholarship that is helping to pay for my college right now!" says Josie.
I am a student of 2nd Year in Electronics and Communication Engineering at the Delhi Technological University (DTU), New Delhi, India. As a student of Electronics, I have a passion for newly developed technologies. At college, I am involved in various community service related and also a part of the Robotics team as the Embedded Systems and Microprocessor Engineer. Recently, I was a part of a project called Green Revolution in association with the United Nations and Government of India. Green Revolution was about using knowledge and Technology to improve the lives of people.
My name is Hariti Patel and I am from Baltimore, MD. By amalgamating a field from the technology sector with a field from the liberal arts sector, I hope to deepen my understanding and explore the intricacies of artificial intelligence. I was awarded a Gains in the Engineering, Mathematics, and Science Internship to discover topics within the networking part of computer science and understand how they are applicable to a variety of jobs. I feel fortunate to have contributed to my community by designing websites for local organizations to translate my knowledge from school into real-world applications, which I consider to be one of my greatest achievements. I became the National Center for Women & Information Technology Award for Aspirations in Computing 2018 Maryland Affiliate Winner through which I was able to join a supportive group of 8,000 young women in the NCWIT Aspirations Community who share a passion for computing and technology with me. After graduating as the Valedictorian of my high school's class, I took on the position of a Creative Director for Reinvented Magazine which focuses on empowering women in STEM fields. As a woman from a minority background, I am determined to work towards closing in the gender gap in the technology field by exposing girls to computer science at a young age and help them understand the significance and prevalence of it in the modern world. NSHSS has served as a significant guide and motivator for me. By connecting with other intellectual scholars, I am empowered and inspired to work harder and strive to accomplish my goals. NSHSS always informs me about opportunities that are available to me, enabling me to gain more experience and deepen my knowledge.
Hello! My name is Justin. I am a freshman at Penn College. I enjoy writing novels, music of all kinds (except country), and I enjoy dancing ballet.
My passion is to help people but especially kids, which is why I want to be a pediatric surgeon. I’m also a very big dog person and anything relating to animal abuse just throws me into a huge fit. My mother, along with my sister and dogs, really drive me to do the best for myself. There’s never a day when I’m alone because whenever I have a problem, they’re always there to offer advice or to just listen to my rants about any and everything. I really want to get involved in community service that would help children in the long run, maybe like a mission project. All in all, I’m really dedicated to my studies because I strive to be able to use all of my potential to help others. NSHSS has made me a better me. I know there are younger members that are looking up to me so that always makes me want to do better.
I’m a part of the Marching Cardinals and other amazing clubs. I attended the La Vernia High School where I served as a Student Council officer for three years, participated in the school band program, and business program. Being apart of these organizations made me who I am today and that makes me tick. I’m very passionate about helping others and making sure that other people can have the same opportunity as I did. I’d currently served in a project called ‘Jessica’s Project’ where we help those with CTE. Being able to help others and seeing what other people can achieve helps drives me to become a better person. Being apart of NSHSS has helped me discover who I am as a person and as a leader. My high school experience has awaken me to help others and to tell them about this organization and to encourage them the take apart in being a member.
