Sharon Wins a Scholarship to USC
As a sophomore in Belmont, MA, Sharon was interested in computers and technology. She enjoyed a vibrant circle of friends, and she worked hard to do well in school.
Sharon worked with College Match to discover that she had a deeper interest in computers than she originally thought, and we prompted her to join tech clubs and science fairs in her area. We worked with her as she tried out for the Robotics Team at her school, and when the team asked her to be their leader in her junior year, we helped her to develop her natural leadership skills through her friendly nature and her work ethic.
Applying the wisdom she gained through mentorship with College Match, Sharon skillfully coached her team through the invention of a brand new robot prototype, which went on to win numerous prestigious science contests at the state, national and international levels. Sharon was recognized in a national magazine celebrating youth in science, and she won the “Women in Sciences” award that year.
Working with College Match gave Sharon the confidence to translate a passing interest into a serious and successful passion.
Sharon was offered many opportunities, and she ultimately earned a prestigious scholarship to attend USC, where she has been flourishing and working with like-minded students to invent new and fascinating robotics technology.
