SMASH Academy is a free of cost, STEM-intensive college preparatory program for underrepresented high school students of color that is run in partnership with several universities, including UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Davis, and Stanford University.

✔︎ I presented my career path, moments of resilience and some key advice as one of three speakers for the SMASH Speaker Series at Stanford University on July 19th, 2018 from 7 pm to 9 pm.
