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 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!
