"Since my first foray into the wild and wonderful world of FPS, I have been in love with the creative problem solving process and engagement of the mind with fascinating futuristic ideas. I’ve regularly been called to speak before the school board about FPS, and always excitedly expound on its plethora of merits. They include, of course, the development of skills applicable in all areas of life. I am fortunate to have collaborated with and befriended individuals from all over the world - individuals with whom I look forward to creating the future!"
