A 17-year-old senior at Notre Dame High School in San Jose, Denise Cobb has been a student intern at The Tech Museum of Innovation for more than two years, working in the media lab and the annual summer camp.
When not studying, she says that she babysits, drives her brothers around, hangs out with her friends and writes ("My favorite activity!") poetry and short stories for writing competitions.
After high school, Denise hopes to attend a four-year university and double major in English and religion, with a focus on journalism and education. She plans on a teaching career. "I hope to stay in the Bay area to teach and incorporate technology into the everyday life of my students," she says.
