Felicia, a 2015 graduate of Nativity BVM High School, was determined to get children, five-year-old and up, to put down their electronic screens and get engaged in fun, hands-on, educational activities that they could easily do at home.
She created her Gold Award project, Beating Boredom, in which she wrote a book filled with 50 learning activities. Felicia’s book has spread around the country and being utilized four states by schools, educators, families and libraries. In addition to her book, Felicia hosted workshops at elementary schools where children could craft and conduct experiments.
Her passion for science can be found in the pages of her books and in her current work. As a sophomore at the University of Pittsburg, Felicia is a double major in Biology and Anthropology and minors in chemistry. She aspires to earn her Ph.D and pursue a career in genetic research. Her ultimate goal is to work for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and participate in Doctors without Borders.
She gained a head start when she earned a position in a research lab where she is working to combat and reverse genetic infertility in women. Join us in celebrating Felicia and her incredible accomplishments at Inspiring Generations Celebration!
