Steven is passionate about social reform, education, learning about new cultures, and the chemicals that makeup all living things. In high school, he participated in numerous community service initiatives especially tutoring at his local library and he created an Andriod app designed to help people organize their medications and medical information. He aims to better understand the world around him by experiencing a new culture and learning everything he possibly can from it (like new recipes and the Portuguese language) within the next year. His favorite quote is from the podcast "Welcome to NightVale"; it reads, "The past is gone, and cannot harm you anymore. And while the future is fast coming for you, it always flinches first, and settles in as the gentle present."
