I'm a freshman from NoVA interested in math. In my freetime, I like to play pickup basketball, practice piano, and watch league of legends.
"Thank you for applying but..."
I applied to probably over 50 internships for the summer, and I got a single interview which didn't lead to anything. Good thing Duke offers Data+!
Thing I thought I'd finish but never did
I was planning to learn two piano pieces over the summer of 2021 before college (Winter Wind and Nocturne in c minor), but it didn't happen :(
Everyday L's of life
Holding your hand out for a fistbump and not receiving one.
On the Bright Side
Memory I made when I wasn't studying/working
Going to New York for the first time with my friends without parental supervision.
Things I've learned that will still matter in 10 years
TV show, movie, or book I enjoyed
I really enjoyed watching the TV show called "The Man in the High Castle." It takes place in an alternative universe where Germany won WWII, I highly recommend it.
Thing I'm proud of that you won't see on my resume
Learning the Heroic Polonaise on the piano felt like one of my biggest accomplishments of 2021. It took like 8 months, and some of the measures took me weeks to figure out.
Things I want to get better at
Things I'm looking forward to in the future
Small joy in my life
Walking around campus at night and looking at the stars
