Caitlin thanked the club for the financial support. She is very excited, with only 34 days to go - Session A in Canberra. Her passions are Maths and Sciences. She has the same teacher for Maths A and B, and she credits the teacher for her enthusiasm for the subject. The teacher wanted her to turn down her excitement.
In Physics she is interested in waves, particularly sound waves. While most people her age are saving for a car, she was saving to buy her first full-sized violin. She just loves the sound and knows a lot about the structure of violins.
In maths and science, the classes are male dominated, with about 2/3 boys. She insists that the girls can hold their own in that sphere. She has found the journey to this point of NYSF very entertaining. She spoke to her Mum, as she had not done a job interview. She felt she can't do this, and can't do that, but she is here today, so that is good. At school, she is looking towards health and medical sciences, but is hoping that NYSF will give her some more ideas. She is looking forward to taking to the meeting again after her return. (Her violin is a 2012 model.)
