I first learned about robotics back in 8th grade. I'd had seen the team that year, when they came to the middle school to show off their robot. I remember being very impressed, and thinking "I could never do something like that!" Yet by the beginning of my freshman year I was getting interviewed to be on the team. Naomi Edwards, our teacher, was kind of intimidating at first, but after getting to know her I realized how cool she was. Being a part of this robotics team has really brought me up, I love all my team members, and I know now that engineering is completely within my reach.
