Hi, I’m a freshman in Chicago, Illinois.
My interest areas are Computer Science /competitive programming/IOS development/ Unity development/Android development (predominately), Math, Leadership/volunteerism (e.g student voice committee, volunteering in a car wash).
The grades I received 7th and 8th were extremely bad, I’m talking a few D’s, couple C’s, mostly A’s and B’s. Right now, I’m a 4.0 student who’s taking the “hardest” classes my school offers, one AP (all my school offers for freshman), and all other Honors classes. I got 102% in one of my classes, as well as 99’s in almost all my classes. The lack of rigor is making school boring for me, once I started trying in school and doing my best, I realized school is just about determination to do good, and not about talent or IQ. I’m planning on taking a few courses at Northwestern CTD that interest me.
I have amazing writing skills according to my Honors English teacher, am historically underrepresented, and is a really hard worker.
But, obviously that’s not enough. My USAD team that I’m apart of usually comes 3rd in the state (this year we’re second place in the state), yesterday we had a scrimmage and I got 3rd place on one of my tests, also, I scored the highest in my school, even though I didn’t study for it. If I did study I have no doubt in my mind that I would’ve gotten first, I have another one coming this following Wednesday.
My awards are quite inconsiderable, but I’ve been practicing extremely hard for the United States Computing Olympiad where I feel like I would advance to silver, and be platinum this year, or next. I’m learning Swift currently preparing for the Apple WWDC, forming a team of talented computer scientist to compete at local hackathons. I’m an expert on codeforces. Fast computational thinker and coder in general, I type 103 WPM on average. Practicing for AMC 10, expecting a perfect or near perfect score.
