Our 2011 Boy of the Year, Juan Carlos Zapata loves math and science (just about as much as he loves sports). At the 2011 Man & Woman of the Year Kickoff event, he shared with the crowd that he would like to be a chemical scientist when he grows up (either that or a professional athlete).
After hearing Juan Carlos talk, Man & Woman of the Year Executive Committee member and Genentech employee, Jenn Choi, arranged for a private tour of the company’s South San Francisco campus for Juan Carlos and his sister, Cassandra. Both kids absolutely LOVED the experience and really got into it. Check out our future scientists in the making below!
