Meet Czarina '20

Czarina is clearly a world-class scholar, athlete, and humanitarian. Every summer, she provides children in the Philippines with life-saving pneumococcal vaccines through “Give it a Shot,” the non-profit organization she founded. Her international service work earned her recognition as New Jersey’s top high school volunteer in the 2019 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program, and the President’s Volunteer Service Award. Czarina has participated in the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth program, and won second place at the Georgetown Medical Immersion program for a group project that explored the use of electroconvulsive therapy versus antidepressants. She studied regenerative medicine, including genome editing, at Harvard, and explored biology and biomedicine as a Yale Young Global Scholar.

Czarina has been welcomed into the National Honor Society and the Spanish, Science, and Math honor societies. Now in her senior year, she is taking Advanced Placement Spanish, literature, calculus, and biology. She completed AP U.S. History, chemistry, and statistics as a junior. She is president of the MEDS club, which provides students with insights into medical careers. As a member of Angels Enable, she utilized 3-D technology to create prosthetics for people in need. She is a peer tutor and served on the Middle States Planning Team. Czarina also makes time to volunteer at Clara Maass Hospital and serve as a lector at the chapel at Saint Joseph’s Hospital. This Angel is a Mother Caroline Scholarship recipient and is consistently named to the Principal’s List and Honor Roll. She recently medaled for her work on the national Spanish examination.
