Hi, my name is Abigail Clark and I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am a sophomore in high-school. I love environmental science, theater, art, reading, and especially amphibians. This trip has inspired me to also start exploring math and engineering. I am part of my school's environmental club, service club, tutoring program, math club, and engineering club. This last summer I also was able to volunteer at an aquarium he guests all about the animals there. When I look back, if I hadn't had that experience I would never have won the Mentor Adventure contest. It gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed, and in fact I chose a woman who works at the aquarium as my mentor. This brings me to the main lesson that I personally took away from that week: get as much experience as you can and motivate yourself to try new things. You gain experience from everything you do, and even if you make a mistake you can learn from it.
