I am a high schooler interested in the management and treatment of food allergies in schools. I was diagnosed with an anaphylactic allergy to all seafood in Kindergarten and am now a Junior attending Princeton High School. Within that time I have lived in three states and attended six different schools. Each school had varying accommodations for food allergies and the staff's level of knowledge was inconsistent among the schools. The dangers of having an allergic reaction is quite real, especially through accidental exposure, and I am passionate about ensuring the safety of students in school. This can be accomplished through effective staff training and accommodations for food-allergic students. I am able to pursue this thanks to the three year Research Program offered at my school and am now in my second year.
