Bridget Wickiser

I am passionate about science, music, and working with children. During high school, I was involved with science classes with elementary school students by performing stimulating, hands-on experiments. I also played the violin, played volleyball, and was involved with his school’s literary magazine, Intersectional Women’s Club, and acting club.

My favorite quote is “Why not go out on a limb? After all that’s where the fruit is.” – Mark Twain
