My name is Emily McGowan. I am currently a freshman at UMass Amherst studying biology. I am from Foxboro, MA and outside of classes I love to play volleyball and I am a 3-year Relay for Life captain. I am very passionate about science, especially biology, and I joined the MAS because I think it is a great opportunity and resource for student in Massachusetts.
I love to help kids and my peers, and I think MAS provides a great bridge for that. I believe that STEM education is essential because it beholds our future and I think it is very powerful to continue that education unto others. This semester, I will be mentoring at MAS and I will be working in administration as Head School Visits Administrator. I am looking forward to my second semester with MAS and excited to work with the kids again and help develop a strong organization. I am very optimistic about it and I think this will be another great semester with many more to come!
