Spotlight: Christine Pham

Christine Pham, 2016 ISB High School Intern, was accepted by WSU’s Honors College and was named a Distinguished Regents Scholar, which awarded her a four-year tuition scholarship.

“ISB saw the potential in me when I had not realized it myself. Working with multiple mentors and lab partners fostered my growth as an individual. As I head to college with the hopes of pursuing an interdisciplinary subject, I will build upon my knowledge of working with complex systems at ISB to help solve tomorrow’s issues. I will always cherish the connections I have made and look to my mentors as my role models in science. Dr. Baliga’s dedication to educating the youth is incomparable, and ISB will have a special place in my heart as I cannot thank ISB enough for the invaluable foundations I learned.”
