Randolph MA –This summer, Mimmi Huria from Randolph MA will join outstanding middle school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic and career oriented development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Explore STEM, taking place this summer at Babson College near Boston MA.
NYLF Explore STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com)that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Mimmi was nominated by her school Principal at Saint Mary of The Hills School in Milton based upon her academic potential and interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. In addition to being inducted into the junior honor roll society in 2018, Mimmi participated and represented her school in the regional odyssey of the mind competition, taken part in the school’s charity walk for Haiti, played a role in her school’s drama club, is passionate about sport and plays Tennis, golf and participates annually in the New England Kids Triathlon. With dreams of being a scientific researcher, Mimmi is looking forward to gaining the hands-on scientific research experience that the forum provides.
“As an alumna of Envision myself, I am excited for Mimmi to meet, work, and collaborate with other high-aspiring students from across the country,” said Amanda Freitag Thomas, SVP for Envision. “Hands down, my favorite part of attending an Envision program was being with motivated students in an environment designed to help us challenge our assumptions, meet new people, and grow.
Creating that same learning environment is a central focus for all of our programs. At NYLF Explore STEM students build the confidence and skills needed to excel in high school, college, and the workplace. They learn how to adapt to and communicate in new situations, to new challenges, and with new people, which, given how rapidly the world is changing due to technology and innovation, are essential skills for success.”
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape
