This morning, I had a conference call with Mrs. Stacie James from UNG. She was so nice! We were talking about how we could partner and teach at-risk kids. She told me that she does a lot of fun science things with her 7 year old son. She told me about how they've done activities on campus where they change the abdomen color of ants! I am so excited that Mrs. Stacie is willing to help me!
Two years ago, SAFFT's Mr. and Mrs. Anderson met with me when my nonprofit was just an idea. Today, I had a meeting with Mr. Anderson to tell him everything I have accomplished so far and my willingness to continue efforts to help their amazing organization. I am so thankful for their support. I'm excited to continue serving their foster children.
I met with Dr. Bodri, the University of North Georgia's Dean of Science & Mathematics. He was so kind and patient. We discussed my science initiative idea to help science professionals be more engaged in the community by teaching at risk youth. I can't wait to get started!
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 13 years old. I love science. It's one of my favorite things to do. When I was 8, one of my friends opened up to me. She shared how she grew up in a shelter and how hard every day was. After that conversation, I decided I wanted to help kids like her in some way. Science I love and kids I love, so put them together and it just makes sense. I knew that some kids out there don't get the chance to be creative with science, like how I do. I strongly believe that no kid should be without the education and enjoyment of science! Not only does it help them get away from their worries for a little while, but it also provides education to them. I hope to inspire kids to do great things, to succeed in science, and to develop a love for science despite the challenges they are facing in their life.
