Overcoming anxiety through robotics

October 30, 2018
Jamie Geng is one of the most talented students to walk through the doors of Westview High in San Diego. She’s an AP student. She’s a musician. But she might be most proud of her time as president of the robotics team. Given all of her accolades, it’s no surprise she was accepted to the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But there was a time where that dream was in doubt. During her sophomore year at Westview High, Jamie suffered from crippling anxiety attacks. Over time, Jamie says she learned to look at the world in a healthier way. Her newfound sense of gratitude is evident as she looks forward to the next chapter in her life.
