Ria is an enthusiastic and hardworking sophomore in Washington State. She is passionate about the STEM fields, specifically the medical field, and hopes to pursue a medicine-related major after high school. Her love for STEM was ignited after placing 3rd in the country for the Heredity subject in the Science Olympiad National tournament of 2019. Since then, she has competed and participated in numerous competitions such as HOSA, DECA, and NSB. She is thrilled to be producing content for Career in STEM and thoroughly enjoys the process of researching new careers and creating graphic designs. This is the perfect way for her to combine her love of science and art into an opportunity to help out the educational community. Outside of STEM, Ria loves partaking in her debate club and leading community service clubs as she is the vice president of Acts of Random Kindness Club as well as 10th grade representative for Interact Club. Ria is excited about continuing her work at Career in STEM and using what she learns from this incredible experience in her future.
