Congratulations to Jack Tian, on receiving the 2020-2021 CSF Michelson Award. He is a member of chapter 786, Troy High School, Fullerton. His adviser is Roger Anderson.
Jack is a senior at Troy High School in Fullerton, California. He founded Aerovate with the vision of engaging youth in STEM through fun competitions, activities, and community service. He truly believes what drives the miracles of science is a fundamentally human intent that is at the core of what scientists seek to do—applying discovery to make the difference we hope for. In his free time, he likes to play basketball and travel down the YouTube rabbit hole.
Congratulations, Roselyn! Thank you for sharing a little about yourself.
I currently attend Channel Islands High School in Oxnard, CA. I am a valedictorian candidate and have previously served as the Vice President and Class Representative of my chapter’s CSF. I have yet to commit to a university, but my first-choice is the University of Southern California, where I plan on majoring in broadcast journalism and minoring in political science. As for vocational goals, I aim to work for CNN as a political reporter and news analyst.
In my application essay, I wrote about how I started a blog to share my experiences with depression and anxiety disorder, which I was diagnosed with when I was just 14 years old. My blog helps over 100 monthly readers cope with their own mental health challenges and has been my way of serving those in need on a global scale. In addition, as an active CSF member, I have discovered many more outlets to help the people in my community through school cleanups, donating socks to local homeless shelters, singing Christmas carols to the elderly at a convalescent home, and writing letters to the troops serving our nation.
