What is your favorite subject and why?
I have always really liked math and history. Math because numbers are concrete and are
found everywhere in life. It has so many real-world applications, and I especially love the
problem-solving aspect of difficult math problems. I like history because the past has so
many lessons to guide us for the future. I enjoy learning how different events have
impacted and shaped the world we live in today.
Hobbies/Other Interests
I'm a huge sports fan and I absolutely love playing both basketball and football. The
intricate strategic elements behind these two sports are absolutely fascinating and I love
striking up conversations about the games and players. I also really enjoy music, having
played piano and later trombone for much of my life. It's a great release for me, and my
favorite genres are alternative, classical, jazz, and rap. I love a good game of Texas Hold
'Em and video games too. Finally, my friends are some of the best I could ask for, and I'm
always up for a great time hanging out with them.
