Scholar Spotlight: Isabella

Scholar Spotlight: Meet Isabella Bravo!

February's birthday girl is this month’s Scholar in the spotlight! Isabella is a member of Cohort I of Onward Scholars at SMA.  She is a graduate of St. Lawrence of Brindisi. 

Isabella is in the Engineering Pathway at SMA and has consistently maintained a 4.5 GPA this year.  Coming off of National Engineers Week and preparing for this week’s FIRST Robotics competition at the Orange County Fairgrounds, the Engineering Career Path Director (Ms. Bubis) and Robotics Coach (Mr. Condrat) have this to say about Isabella:

Isabella is doing well in both Introduction to Engineering Design and Algebra 2 Honors. She is an active participant in the ACE (Architecture, Construction, and Engineering) Mentor Program. In addition, Isabella will represent SMA as one of the three members of our team for the Chevron Design Challenge. 

Isabella consistently demonstrates a high level of interest and dedication to the robotics team and has become one of the key members of the team in her first season and will also co-pilot the robot at the regional event this week.

Isabella states. “It is really fun to be able to experience mechanical engineering early on in my academic career.  The opportunity to go out and compete also really helps develop my leadership skills. I love the fact we really get along; when we see each other on campus we always say hello to one another.”

Isabella is active in her community through her involvement in the Girl Scouts. She is currently working toward her Gold Award, the highest award earned by a Girl Scout. 

We are so proud of you, Isabella!  Keep up the great work! Congratulations and continued success to you!
