Even before I went to E Quad to attend the very first day of the AAASE Summer Academy, I was already excited and looking forward to meeting all of the presenters and my classmates, as well as visiting Princeton, my dream college. However, when that anticipated first day finally rolled around, I couldn't believe that everything (the accomplished presenters, my friendly classmates, the interesting lectures, and even the food!) could be even better than I had imagined! Aside from giving students the opportunity to attend lectures on STEM topics, Asian American history, leadership, and more, they also provided us with a campus tour and allowed us to conduct our own research projects. This summer camp truly packs all kinds of experiences in just a few short days! Without a doubt, going to the AAASE Summer Academy was one of the best decisions that I could have made, as it stimulated my interest in a variety of STEM fields that I used to find boring or uninteresting, allowed me to connect with students with similar interests, and opened my eyes to a welcoming, supportive community. Highly recommend applying to the AAASE Summer Academy!
