The student pilot stated she was attempting to make a full stop landing and had made two previous go-arounds. She remained in left closed traffic for runway 23. On downwind she performed the before landing check and lowered the flaps to 20 degrees, started a descent, turned base and lowered the flaps to the full down position. On touchdown the airplane bounced, became airborne again, and touched down on the runway. She immediately applied full power without raising the flaps. The airplane pitched nose up about 45 degrees, the right wing dropped, the airplane stalled, and collided with the taxiway.
