Hi, I’m Jaden Baldwin, a senior majoring in Forensic Sciences Biochemistry and minoring in Psychology. I graduated from Middleton High School in Tampa. I have always been drawn to science, and the classes I’ve taken have been challenging but so rewarding. The lab credits are always my favorite, because I love to learn by doing. I joined the COMPASS mentors because I’ve had heavy exposure to STEM from an early age. I accidentally fell into something that I have become extremely passionate about, and I want to help others find that passion. Volunteering, robotics tournaments, and video games are my favorite ways to fill my weekends.

The best advice I can offer to any students coming into UCF is to take every opportunity you can. You’ll never know what you like until you try, and UCF offers a huge selection in events, clubs, groups, and internships.
