Ayushi Batwara

In the future, with my interest in computer science, I aspire to take a technological approach to today’s reactionary healthcare by capitalizing on the increased accessibility to smart gadgets. I aspire to build telehealth solutions utilizing interoperability, edge computing, and artificial intelligence, emphasizing preventive strategies that doctors can implement for those with limited access to healthcare. In summary, I’d like to bring smart healthcare to the fingertips of the global underserved community – Ayushi Batwara


Daniel Dickman

College will give me the stronger foundation I need to make those decisions, so I am better able to adapt to and contribute meaningfully to a rapidly changing world. Acquiring this kind of understanding will take a lot more work, but I am up to the task, and I am excited for the opportunity. My high school teachers have done an excellent job preparing me for my path forward. Although I cannot predict the future, I have worked hard to prepare for it, and I will continue to make myself more capable to meet it – Daniel Dickman

Julia Holec

Having a balanced lifestyle has made me into the person I am today. I know when to take something seriously like in school and sports, but I also know when to have fun. I think having balance in my life will prepare me for college and beyond Julia Holec


Valentina Martinezotto

My confidence was possible with the support I have received from my family. My parents have always encouraged me to branch out and not close myself off to one group of people. I never listened to their advice because of my fear of change, but after maturing I have realized that putting yourself outside of your comfort zone is the only way to grow – Valentina Martinezotto

Civil Air Patrol (CAP) an auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force- created a cadet well-being and collaboration platform during the pandemic increased the feeling of togetherness between the cadets and gave them a chance to reflect on their lives and communities. This experience made me feel a part of something bigger, giving me the ability to pay it forward to help my community – Aditya Setty

 

Swathi Narayan

Today, in a world growing increasingly divided by shameless hate, we need the lessons that Relay for Life taught me.  Learning to seek the good in everything and everyone, rather than the differences that set us apart.  As a part of the Relay family, this is the mission that I will take with me.  I have learned that we can create light when there is none - Swathi Narayan
