Singing, and playing an instrument, are amazing talents, but if you really want to get yourself on the judges radar try shooting stuff off in the air.
Camille Schrier in the end of June was crowned Miss Virginia 2019, for her talent portion of the competition 24-year-old biochemist let us see what she does best, science.
Miss. Schrier showed us a science experiment, demonstrating the catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, a reaction that happens when hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with a catalyst such as potassium iodide. Seconds after she mixed the chemicals large spouts of colorful foam shot out of the beakers into the air. What followed where cheers from the audience and a crowing from the judges.
Schrier is quoted “Keep an eye out, because science is all around us.” “I am more than Miss Virgina, Miss Systems Biologist, Miss Future PharmD looking toward a pharmaceutical industry career.” “Now was the time for me to create a mind shift about the concept of talent by brining my passion for STEM to the stage.” “To me, talent is not a passion alone, but also a skill which is perfected over years of learning.”
Miss Virginia is currently a Doctor of Pharmacy student at Virginia Commonwealth University and a graduate of Virginia Tech. Scarier this month (September) will be competing in the Miss America Pageant.
