Singuarity’s summer programs scholarship recipients
Meet our two scholarship recipients for Drexel University summer programs: Kyrollos Ibrahim (11th grade), an honors student from St. Joseph by the Sea High School, Staten Island, NYC, and Marina Gayed (10th grade) an accomplished student and competitive swimmer from Archbishop Carney Regional Secondary School, British Columbia, Canada.

Marina ventured into engineering and was accepted as part of Drexel’s school of Biomedical engineering where she spent her summer exploring all Drexel had to offer of cutting edge technologies in engineering and related health applications. Her presentation on blood clots during her capstone project was impressive, we had our team cheering for her!
Marina joining the program from Canada made some time for some cultural exploration with some trips planned through Singularity to NYC, Broadway, and a tour of Princeton University.
These two bright high school students attended STEM summer programs at Drexel University in areas they would not have pursued. This program is part of Singularity’s mission to encourage youth to try new fields in STEM and areas they wouldn’t have tried before.
Kyrollos who wants to pursue a career in medicine tried out a program in Data science as part of Drexel’s College of Computing & Informatics. He was even able to bridge the two worlds with a capstone project that highlighted the relation between social equity with air quality and the direct health impacts.
Both students didn’t stop there, they volunteered at America’s Grow a Row farms and helped harvest 14,500 pounds of corn! This provided 58,000 servings of fresh produce for neighbors struggling with food insecurity.
