Teen Advisory Board Member

My name is Royce and I am from Medford, NJ. I am 16 years old and attend Shawnee High School. I am active in my school community in the Wind Ensemble, Cross Country and Track teams as well as the FIRST Robotics and TSA Engineering clubs. One of my biggest accomplishments is founding the Medford, NJ Lion's Heart chapter that has provided 1300+ hours of community service. I enjoy helping other people and making a difference in my community. I have received Bronze, Silver and Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Awards. I have also received the Congressional Award Silver Medal, and am currently working towards the Gold Medal. I am very interested in STEM topics, and am excited to participate in the University of Texas-NASA SEES internship this summer. In my free time, I am usually in my amateur chemistry lab experimenting, or designing and making things. Currently, I am building a small robotic submersible. My hobbies include playing board games with my family and friends. Before COVID, I enjoyed playing Magic The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons at my local game store. Now I play mostly online. I enjoy playing video games on my PC, including Civilizations and Conquers Blade.
