Christina Wang, 16, is a Grade 10 student at St. Clement’s School, an all-girls private school in Toronto. Craving for more than STEM programs at her school, she took action on her own to expose herself to emerging technologies. She reads research papers, goes to conferences, and reaches out to experts in fields of interest, such as scientists at the European Space Agency, for networking and mentoring. She is an innovator at The Knowledge Society, a platform to train young students to solve the world’s biggest problems. Christina is particularly interested in pushing social, economical, and environmental sustainability within the space technology industry. Recently, Christina wrote a science proposal to investigate how different microgravity environments impact fetal health. This type of research is crucial to establishing long-term settlements within future multi-planetary systems, such as settling in Mars! In addition, she co-founded Neuroqa, a moonshot project that aims to develop personalized probiotics for people with mental illnesses, specifically depression. On top of her passion for science, Christina is driven to make art. She believes that art can make a significant cultural impact. Art has the ability to shape and express our beliefs and perspective of the world. She always incorporates her artistic feel and expression when designing web pages, which is another hobby of hers (neuroqa.com). As much as a girl who fears to die as a mediocre person, Christina says she loves the process of failing. “You’re doing something wrong, if you’re not failing” is the title she wrote for a recent article, when trying to recruit young avid debaters in her school’s debate club, which she is the co-head of.
