Student review
I’ve learned a lot about how to research and how to actually create blog posts. Whereas obviously, when I'm getting a regular education at school, we're not really focusing on that. We're following the curriculum and learning material from sources that have mainly been provided to us. So, I think Polygence has really taught me how to go out and find much more in-depth research material. It also helps that you’re getting one-on-one time with someone who is there to personally help you on all aspects of your project from start to finish.

Project description

As a junior in high school, Diya knows all about the stress involved with balancing schoolwork and being an active member of the school community — not to mention the time commitment involved in extracurriculars and managing a social life. Through her transition into high school, the most important thing she has learned is to prioritize taking care of yourself. Without good habits and a healthy lifestyle, she believes you may be limiting your ability to accomplish your goals. So, she created a blog and through thorough research into scientific articles, she wrote posts to provide helpful information that empowers high school students to proactively manage their physical and mental health.
