I am honoured by an amazing opportunity from the National Youth Science Forum to attend the Research Science Institute (RSI) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the top universities in the world.
RSI is a program for 80 students from around the globe, which allows us to pursue cutting edge research we are passionate about. We will work alongside top scientists and professors from Harvard University and MIT learning from those most distinguished in their field.
I have been inventing and helping society through projects, which include the SAS System - a device for developing communities which provides clean drinking water and medical sterile water for those most in need, and, the SMART Armour - a device to aid women during radiotherapy breast cancer treatment.
The SMART Armour was recognised last May at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, and I was the first Australian in the competition's 67 year history to place 1st.
I would love the opportunity to deepen my passion in STEM, and the RSI Program is a perfect way to do this, however, none of this will be possible without much needed support and funding. I must raise $18,225 to attend, any contribution is much appreciated and will help me to achieve my dreams.
