About Me

My name is Divya Aikat and I'm a volunteer intern at Shodor and a sophomore at Chapel Hill High School. I hope to be a doctor when I grow up. My favorite class I've taken so far is Honors Chemistry. Other notable classes I have taken or am taking this year are: Honors Biology, Honors Spanish 4, AP Calculus BC, AP Physics C: Mechanics, AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism, and AP Computer Science. At the moment, I do indoor and outdoor track. I did cross country throughout eighth grade. I really love reading and hanging out with friends. I also really enjoy watching Netflix and my favorite shows are House M.D. and The Office. I have an older brother, who's currently a Morehead-Cain scholar at UNC and also worked at Shodor. I was born and raised in Chapel Hill and both of my parents are professors at UNC. I joined Shodor because I really enjoy STEM and I want to learn more about science and math and their real-life applications. I've also completed the apprenticeship, the Shodor Scholars Program, and many of the other workshops at Shodor.
