Mathematics

I am interested in math not only because it provides endless satisfaction after I was introduced to mathematics at early age by an awesome teacher who always encouraged me to “ think like a mathematician”. Well, I am still on my way to think like a mathematician, but I do favor math more and more not only because it provides endless satisfaction after I solve a problem, but also because I enjoy the thinking process with logic and creativity.

Coding

I was initially attracted to coding by Scratch 6 years ago. Afterward, I learned python, and currently, I am focusing on c++ and algorithms. I like coding because it is so amazing to solve those complex problems with just some lines of code, and I would love to utilize my coding skills to solve real-life problems. Coding isn’t coldblooded or boring. It requires observation, thinking, logic and innovation. Now I am planning to explore the robotics programs, looking forward to further developing my skills.

Science

I am intrigued by science since I was in elementary school. The beauty of the universe kept my passion for science. This year, I began studying AP Physics I. I did unexpectedly well which boosted my confidence. In the future, I am motivated to take a step forward.

Debating & Public Speech

Debating gives me an opportunity to seriously think about the things that happen in our life. I have teamed up with several other students in our school to participate in debating contests., and I also actively engage myself in the Model United Nations activities and the school’s TED. Those experience has taught me the importance of critical thinking, proper expression and teamwork.
