The High School Outreach Program begins

I couldn’t be more proud to be a mentor in this year’s High School Outreach Program (HSOP) of the Furche group. This program aims at introducing talented and interested high school students to the academic environment.

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll have the chance to work with a very bright and enthusiastic student. Due the current situation, this year’s internship is conducted remotely, which makes it even more special. I would probably agree that nothing compares to meeting someone in person, but looking on the bright side, this setting allows us to collaborate beyond the city or county. And indeed, I’ll be working with a student in New Jersey!

I’m so excited and very much looking forward to this experience which will not only involve teaching and mentoring, but also a lot of learning for me!
