Hi! I’m Kat, from Lowell, MA. I’m a first-year student at MIT studying Urban Planning and Computer Science.
Science and Us, a nonprofit that runs events and creates online resources to help high schoolers learn how to make science clear and engaging.
I’m a founder of the
We Are America Project, working with 1300+ students in almost 25 states to share stories that spark conversations, led by the next generation, on what it means to be American.
Above all else, I value integrity, authenticity, empathy, and surrounding yourself with people who lift each other up.
Last summer, I interned at
Repl.it, a Y Combinator-backed startup. During high school, I organized hackathons, did biology research, and earned NCWIT’s National Award for Aspirations in Computing.

When I’m not working on projects, I’m probably scrolling through memes or exercising—maybe both.
