Hi, I'm Caroline. I'm a recent graduate from Durham Academy in North Carolina and rising freshman at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. I have been an intern here at Shodor for over four years and am learning all kinds of fun, new things. Ron Broadnax is my mentor and I work primarily on engineering related tasks and help teach camps, Shodor Scholars, and apprentices. On this website I will tell you all about these things, whether it be on my blog, portfolio, or right here!
Now let me tell you a little about my family. I have an amazing mom and dad, and three siblings. I have two older sisters, and one older brother. All of my siblings have graduated from college- my two sisters work and my brother is currently a medical student in Boston. I love them all, and am always excited when I get to see them.
As I said, I am a recent graduate from Durham Academy (DA). At DA, I enjoyed many of my classes, including Honors and AP Chemistry, BC Calculus, AP Government, and AP English. I also was heavily involved in Science Olympiad and competed at the regional, state, and invitational level. I also had the privilege to to be the captain of the team senior year. I also started the Engineering World Health club my junior year which has high school students construct and solder different circuit kits, such as the Heart Rate Monitor and Electrocardiogram simulator kits, that are sent to third world countries to teach medical professionals how to use the materials. I also played school soccer at DA, starting all four years. Outside of school, I worked at Shodor and I played club soccer for Triangle United '97 Girls Gold.
Now that I have graduated high school, I will be beginning college at Northeastern University in the fall as an intended chemical engineering major. I look forward to my classes, clubs, and intramural sports. I am also very excited to live in and explore Boston!
I hope that you have enjoyed learning about me, and I hope that you will visit my website again; in particular, look for my blog that I plan to update frequently. Thanks for reading!
