JuSTEMagine Board Member Spotlight

By Keerthana Vinod

JuSTEMagine is a service organization that promotes STEM and SEL education to students around the world. I interviewed Siri, a junior at Brownell Talbot School and the Vice President of JuSTEMagine.

How did you find out about JuSTEMagine, and why did you join?

I found out about JuSTEMagine in the fall of my freshman year when JuSTEMagine’s former President Jack Cenovic reached out to me. I joined because it gave me an outlet to explore fields in STEM and especially because I could meet new people and make new connections. I’m very glad I joined because JuSTEMagine helped me to find a love for volunteering.

What’s your favorite part about being on the Publication team?

Although time-consuming, I enjoy the creative freedom I get on the publication team. As a Copy Editor, I get to make the “cover pages” for each article and I like looking through different templates, colors, and fonts to pick which ones go best with each article.

What’s the most difficult thing about being a board member? What’s the best thing?

The most difficult thing about being a board member is knowing when to be assertive; there are a lot of things you have to communicate to other board members and volunteers, and knowing how to communicate well to get your point across is an important skill to have. The best thing is being able to have a bigger role in the overall running of the organization. As Vice President, I like that I don’t have to strictly focus on one area of JuSTEMagine’s outreach and I get to help lead various teams, complete special projects, and have a bigger role in decision-making.

Any fun facts you’d like to share about yourself? Like a favorite STEM-related course in school?

My favorite STEM course at school is probably AP Biology because it’s a subject that I’ve been interested in for a long time and I appreciated how in-depth the class went.

Thank you Siri for being part of this interview and congratulations for being our JuSTEMagine Board Member Spotlight!
