Favorite website: I spend a lot of time on the internet, mostly on reddit.com.

Favorite TV show: Right now I am into American Horror Story.

Favorite movie:  I don’t have any favorite movies at this moment, for some reason I react a lot to movies right when I see them.

Ambition: Other than taking over the world, I want to go to a good university, major in computer science/electrical engineering and do a lot of research. After I finish college I am hoping to go into the whole start up area.

What drove you to be interested in the start up area?
I think just the fact that they’re accomplishing so much right now; both research and start ups are finding innovative ways to solve problems that people didn't even think about solving in previous times.

What drives you to succeed?
 I have really unhealthy perfectionism.

Favorite class: I really enjoyed Chemistry AP; I took the class during my junior year, and it was a lot of fun. Since it was a small class, we got the chance to become really close. All the students were smart and facing that challenging of a course together was just really fun. 

Favorite things to do after class: I spend a lot of time playing the violin with my friends, I love to read, and I am also involved in theater. I also like to listen to podcasts when I get the chance.

Favorite book: I don’t have a favorite book, but one of my favorite authors fright now is Oliver Sacks, he writes non-fiction.

Favorite song or favorite musical genre: I love classic rock, and I am also into alternative indie.

Favorite website: I spend a lot of time on the typical social media websites, xkcd.com, theonion.com and reddit.com.

Favorite TV show: I really like “Modern Family.”

Favorite movie:  I am a big fan of old movies like Casa Blanca or Citizen Kane.

Ambition: I am hoping to major in cognitive sciences at either Northwestern University or Stanford University.

What sparked you interest in cognitive sciences?
I just started reading some stuff and learning about the brain and how it works with our body. As far as research goes I want to have the chance to make discovers and expand my knowledge.

What drives you to succeed?

 I used to have a perfectionist mentality where I had to be the best at everything I did. I don’t do that very much anymore, but the mentality at being the best hasn’t gone away. I constantly strive to be one of the most advance memories in eve and to make discoveries!
