I'm just an African American girl who's really short and loves the color purple...

Hi, I'm 17 years old and I came here because I was able to receive an amazing opportunity by the works of NSF and STEM. And I'm just an African American girl who's really short and loves the color purple and I overthink a lot and I always hope to find simplicity in things.

But, I always find myself overthinking things and I always worry about the future and I picked up this phone and pressed "record my own story,” because I wanted to hear other people's stories as well as tell my own. And I don't think I have enough time in the world really to tell you to the full extent, ya know? The full story of my own, but I have a couple minutes and I have to get back to my group so this will just be one of those clips that you hear, ya know, if you pick it up.

And, um, yeah. Just know though that, whoever's listening, you're awesome. I mean, look where you are! So, from me to you, always keep strong.
