What Got You Involved in the Team?
I really wanted to join a capable team at my school for a STEM related field and Robotics is a great community/team with many of my friends who claimed it was a great learning experience. I wanted to get some hands on knowledge with the STEM field and thought that PRHS Robo Lions would be a great way to do so under knowledgeable officers.
Who is Your Role Model?
My brother is my role model in all things of life because he has shaped me into the person I am today. He is extremely successful at everything he does and I aspire to follow in his footsteps to live a life like his. In my opinion he has extremely good character and he serves as a fantastic role model for me to look up to.
What are Your Future Career Plans
I want to become a chemical engineer or computer scientist later on in life. If I were to become a computer scientist I would want to work at a big Silicon Valley type business like Google where I can work in a flexible and fun work environment. I don't know as much about chemical engineering but I would also prefer to work in a big, flexible business firm.
Interests or Hobbies
I enjoy playing games like Counter Strike Global Offensive and League of Legends during my weekends. One of my favorite past times is just hanging out with friends or doing homework with close friends while chatting. I also love to watch movies (particularly sci-fi).
What Other Groups/Clubs Are You Involved In?
I'm involved with Beta club, NHS, MAO, UNICEF, and HOSA. I'm Vice President of both NHS and MAO but I love all my clubs. Beta club is one of my favorites because of the great community that makes up Beta and the passion that goes into the club. In NHS we mostly do volunteering opportunities and in MAO we participate in tutoring and competitions. UNICEF is about volunteering as well and HOSA is about medically related fields.
What Are Your Dreams In Life?
My dream is to live in a big city, working a fun job that I love when I'm young. When I grow older I want to have a family or go traveling before then with my spouse. Later in life I'd like to live in a comfortable suburb and raise my kids to be successful :)
