I am a rising junior at Thomas Jefferson High School. My favorite subjects are geography, chemistry,and computer science. In 2009 I won the Virginia National Geographic Bee and had a flag flown in my honor at the Virginia Capitol in Richmond by delgate Tom Rust. The washington post ran an article on me and I was featured on Fox News and WTOP radio in 2009 for my National Geographic achievement. In high school, I am a member of the TJ Quizbowl club. Our team recently won the Virginia Scholastic Bowl State Championship. We also won two local tournaments and won second place in another. I am an officer elect of the Quiz Bowl club for next year and will be the webmaster for the club's website. I am also a member of the TJ Computer Team which participates in ACSL and USACO curriculum.

This year I took AP Chemistry and AP Computer Science after taking Chemistry 1 summer of 2011. Next year(in my 11th grade) I will be taking Artificial Intelligence, AP Physics, BC Calculus, AP US History, and will be self-studying AP Micro/Macroeconomics and AP Human Geography. I will be following up my interests in geography and computer science by going deeper into Geographic Information Systems(GIS) and GIS/GPS modeling
