My name is Rhiley and I am currently a sophomore studying Biology – Conservation and Ecology Track at UCF. I decided to get involved with the STEM Ambassador program because I wanted to be the bridge for the next generation of STEM students; to be encouragement and inspiration for people who are like me. I hope to contribute a new set of eyes and a new perspective, so students and teachers see STEM in a creative, fun and impactful way. My advice for future STEM students is: Be authentic. Be your true self. While you’re trying to be someone else, who is going to be you? The world needs you to be true to yourself so you can create change.
