Isabela Reyes-Klein

Bela was the Project Manager for the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge that ended up winning Galena STEM $125,000 in Samsung technology by using STEM principles to build adaptive equipment for their mentally and physically handicapped peers in the special-ed program. When she’s not leading 90 freshman on a vast project that produced 21 prototypes, she’s doing homework or tinkering away, producing films like The Addlers that won a Nevada Museum of Art Teen Jury Prize, or editing her fist novel that’s slated for publication at the end of 2015, she’s running cross country, playing lacrosse, and coming up with future business ideas. Bela has always been interested in leadership, ever since she at age 9 founded WCSD’s first ever elementary speech and debate club after being inspired on a school tour. In 8th grade, she was selected by Pine Middle School Leadership to represent them in the Rotary 8th grade Middle School Leadership Experience Program along with various other academic achievement awards. She’s interested in learning coding, and is looking at a career in Engineering or Engineering Management. For now, she has three more years of high school left, and is looking to make the most of it.
