The Intel ISEF 2018 trip was amazing! It was so much fun seeing and interacting with brilliant students from around the world. I still cannot believe that about 81 countries were represented. I was pleasantly surprised by the city of Pittsburgh. At first, I did not really know what to expect, but it was very beautiful and inviting. I loved going to the National History Museum and seeing the Steelers Hall of Fame at Heinz Field. The city scape and the various bridges across the river gave the city a lot of character that I will never forget. I loved presenting my project for my final high school science competition. It was a very bittersweet moment, as this fair truly marked both a beginning and an end. I cherished every moment with my fellow CT-STEM participants, wether it was when we were all complaining about our aching feet after a long day of judging or when we were dancing together at the mixer. The trip was truly special, and the experience was priceless! I feel so honored to have been a part of such a wonderful event. Thank you to those who made this possible for me to come to Pittsburgh, to learn from geniuses from all over the globe, and to enjoy myself.
