What is your favorite subject in school?: 
I love all of the school subjects. My favorites are math and science. I enjoy them because I have always loved science(explained later) and math is very interconnected with science.
What kind of extra-curricular activities or hobbies do you enjoy participating in?: 
I enjoy playing guitar in a school jazz band, swiming in a swim team, and guitar lessons. I enjoy jazz band and guitar lessons because I have always enjoyed music and it is fun to have a whole band to play with. I like swim team because I also love the water. For my hobbies, I enjoy entering in brainy competitions, playing guitar and violin, playing flight simulator, (occasionally coding html), short filmaking, and I am currently working on a plan to turn my old rc airplane into a boat. (I can't enter into the science fair because my school doen't participate.)
What career do you want to pursue and why?: 
I want to become an electrical engineer who works in the field of environmentalism. I want to do this because I want to help solve the issues that we are having with global warming and electrical engineering is somthing that is going to help get whatever inventions are thought up running and maintained.
Why did you enter in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge?: 
I saw the Mythbusters episode with the YSC last year and I decided to enter. Last year I made it into the semifinals and I found it to be an enjoyable experience so I decided to give it another go.
What do you enjoy most about science?: 
I love science because it can answere our biggest questions like; are we alone and; what is our biological history. I also love it because it can solve the problems that we create such as global warming and crimes.
Anything else you'd like to tell us about yourself?: 
I am very interested in electrical engineering, aviation, and music. I understand a basic concept of elecricity, ohms law, which is voltage=current x resistance. I also have a flight simulator that I enjoy flying and I recieve 3 aviation magazines. In 4th grade I made it into the city science fair. When I was in the 5th grade I recieved a mentorship where I made an elctrolyzer. Finnaly, last year, I made it into the semifinals of the Young Scientist Challenge with my video on the nature of a spacecrafts orbital path.
