Victoria Gomez has been a MESA student since sixth grade at Memorial Middle School, where she remembers spending many hours working on Robotics. She moved on to Robertson High School, where she was particularly interested in the work the MESA program did with Physics, Engineering, and Alternative Energy Sources.
This fall, she’ll be headed to Stanford University as a Physics Major (though she also has a strong interest in Neuroscience). As a student in the Leland Scholars Program, she’ll arrive on campus three weeks early to learn about Stanford and meet other students with interests in STEM fields.
How did she get this far? Victoria says that she had great teachers and counselors and she worked hard in school. During her junior year at Robertson, her teacher and classmates returned from the MESA Senior Incentive Field Trip to California. She saw pictures and heard personal stories about their visit to Stanford, and thus began her dream of becoming a student at Stanford University.
Good luck Victoria!
