Grade 10, The Newman School
Hunessa is 15 years old and lives in Hyde Park. She is currently in the 10th grade at The Newman School. Hunessa is most proud of her singing ability, independence, intellectual capability, and the way she is able to see the good in the world. If she could strengthen something in her community it would be the position of youth in everyday life. She believes the way youth are seen nowadays is not the most positive, so she would make sure that teens have a good position and responsibilities in the community. She would make sure that the teens have a trustworthy image. Hunessa attended a camp at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2013 made her realized her strengths in mathematics and science. That camp influenced her to want to become an engineer.
