ABOUT

I am a senior in high school and am involved in a number of extracurriculars: varsity scholastic team, FIRST robotics, Girlscouts, teen library volunteering, Girls Who Code, National Honor Society, ETS/TRiO, and my high school's band program. I play both lead saxophone in jazz band and first chair oboe. In my future, I plan to pursue a CS degree and enter the field of data science with a focus on deep learning.
