Key to Awesomeness: "My key to awesomeness is being creative, curious and a good listener. I am a very respectful, attentive and hard-working student. I really think learning is fun, and I go to school everyday with a positive attitude and ready to learn. I have a big interest in science and love to do experiments. As soon as I heard about the Science Fair, I knew I wanted to be involved, even though I was not receiving a grade. I was so happy and excited when my name was called for first place at the county-wide Science Fair—now that was awesome!"
