What is your favorite subject in school?: 
Science and math are my favorite subjects, although really I like all the subjects.
What kind of extra-curricular activities or hobbies do you enjoy participating in?: 
As a Boy Scout I enjoy camping and hiking, and I learned community service. I play the violin in the orchestra at school. Participating in the video club gave me confidence to face the camera. I am active in Tae Kwon Do, Robotics, History Day, and Science Fairs.
What career do you want to pursue and why?: 
I have not made up my mind yet. I may someday work in the field of nanotechnology. I like nanotechnology because it works with the building blocks of things - atoms and molecules. It also combines different areas of science, like biology, physics, and chemistry. Nanotechnology can help to solve many problems - from providing clean energy to curing cancer.
What do you enjoy most about science?: 
I like science because of all the applications it has to real life, and how scientists make discoveries that revolutionize the world. The subject itself is endless. Scientists ask a question and explore it. What they find out may stir up some other questions, which are then explored further. It's an endless chain reaction.
