Hi! My name is Sophia Simms and I am a high school senior from Southern California. I am very interested in STEM, especially in the physical sciences and engineering, and I try to take advantage of every opportunity to learn more. I am grateful to be a part of the TSS team so that I can research topics that interest me and improve my scientific writing skills. I am also a 2018 Questbridge Junior Prep Scholar, 2019 Questbridge College Match Finalist, Horatio Alger Scholar, Key Club division news editor, and captain of my high school’s varsity tennis team. I am very excited to be a part of this community and I hope to contribute to it in any way that I can.
