Representatives

Representatives are the primary legislative body of Neurodivergent of FIRST. They brainstorm ideas, front organization projects, and represent us at FIRST events. Any FIRST member who is neurodivergent can apply for Representative at any time here.

Amon - FRC 5530 - Autism - They/Them

Howdy! I'm Amon Green and I was a mechanical and programming member on FRC 5530 for four years, scouting leader, strategy co-leader, and Dean's List Semifinalist in Michigan in 2018. I served as an Neurodivergent of FIRST Administrator since 2019 and an LGBTQ+ of FIRST Administrator from 2018 - 2020. I'm a Mechanical Engineer in a machine shop where I design manufacturing processes for gears in Aerospace applications and am currently pursuing my Mechanical Engineering degree at the University of Michigan.

Addison - FTC 3540- ADHD- She/Her 

Hi everyone! I'm Addison, captain of 3540 Roboboogie! I am currently a senior in high school and I've been part of Roboboogie for the past four years and captain for the past two. I love working on the mechanical aspects of our robot and take special pride in the unique ways that our team designs and builds our robot. I plan on majoring in English Literature in college but intend on still participating in robotics and coming back to mentor my team and any other team that would like my help. This is my first year as a representative of Neurodivergent of FIRST and I can't wait to help share NDof within the FIRST community.

Some of my hobbies include coding, working on electrical projects, playing piano, and reading. I have been an NDoF representative since 2023. I mostly help with promoting NDoF at competitions and I spread awareness about neurodiversity within my team because I want to make robotics more accessible for neurodivergent folk.

Zoe - FRC 4039 - ASD, ADHD - She/Her

Hey hey! The name is Zoe! I am a 5-year veteran student on FRC Team 4039, located in ON, Canada. I've been part of FIRST since 2016 with FLL, and joined the FRC scene in the 2019-20 season. On the team, I run the new NDoF Sub-Team Lead, where we focus on spreading the message of this organization and construct a mobile quiet room for the Ontario Events. I am also in charge of the team's graphical design, which heavily focuses on the artistic side of things. I've been an NDoF Representative since October 2023, and I plan on doing anything I can to help this organization achieve its goal!
