My friend, Mrs. Stephanie Hampson, is the Librarian for the Hampton Park Library. She does STEAM classes at the library for kids. I always enjoy taking her classes. I asked her one day if she could help me with ideas for my volunteer program. She gave me places to find supplies and fully motivates me by saying things like, "This is amazing, Angelica!" She is a fabulous librarian and friend.
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 12 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.
