Foothill High SchoolClass of 2022

About

Hi, I'm Emma! I live in Pleasanton, California and am a senior at Foothill High School. Some of my favorite classes are psychology, music, child growth, and human body systems. In my free time, I like to draw, read books, and play instruments. Some of the instruments I play include flute and piano. I am very excited to give a brief intro to my project that I have been working on this summer! I would love to see you register at the symposium on Saturday, September 18! If you are interested to learn more about my project than just what I cover during the symposium, please feel free to reach out to me afterwards.

Case study: Social media usage and happiness in high school students during isolation period of summer 2020

Started June 28, 2021

Abstract or project description

Throughout the course of this research project, I will interview no more than 4 demographically similar peers (living in Pleasanton, going to Foothill High School) about the relationship between social media usage and the dominant emotions that they experienced during the summer of 2020. I will be writing a research paper that discusses the findings of the interviews along with a review of existing literature. I will potentially submit it for publication in a high school journal.
