Outstanding Student Essay Published on Reptiles Magazine

We first met Jessica Leung at the annual gala of  Youth Science Center late last year, in which she accepted the High School First Place award at the YSC STEM Essay Contest. In our interview with her about her winning, Jessica shared her passion about science subjects and her motivation to become a scientist when she grows up.

This March, Troy High School freshman Jessica took off to the Galapagos Islands with her school to observe the wild life on the islands. Her essay “Herping the Galapagos Islands” just got published by the Reptiles Magazine. Congrats on a job well done.

Here is Jessica’s article about her time at the Galapagos with the amazing species of reptiles.
