The Boy with the Sad Past and a Bright Mind
Nathan Ross is a high school student from New Mexico. He is a sophomore at Canon Christian Academy at the same time takes classes at the University of New Mexico. Twice a week, Nathan divides his time between his two schools.
Before he achieved all these, Nathan had his fair share of hardships. When he was 12 years old, his dad passed away from congestive heart failure. Nathan describes the tragic event as a “constant weight” that was not easy for their family.
Since then, Nathan has been helping in the care of his mom. He has been doing all that while continuing to pursue impressive grades at school.

Crossing Paths with The National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists
Nathan is all set to attend the Congress. He will be right at home with his fellow science enthusiasts and prodigies. Here, they will all meet and learn from the top professionals in their fields of interest. Not only that — they will also get to learn from distinguished Nobel Prize winners.
Initially, Nathan thought the idea of attending the Congress was overwhelming. But as his grandmother Maralyn Hillman confirms, Nathan is wise beyond his years. With this, Nathan will not find it hard to get his bearings once he’s at the Congress.
With his talent and capabilities, Nathan has a whole world to conquer. But he chooses to stay in New Mexico to attend New Mexico Tech University. He also wants to pursue a career as an engineer.
Nathan never forgets his dad, as he always strives for excellence to make both his parents proud.
Attending the Congress won’t be possible without the support of parents and family. Hear the Congress experience of the delegates’ parents from this SciTechLeaders video:
