Whenever possible, I love to learn new things and spread my knowledge. I spend my days challenging myself academically and elsewhere, including through reading and learning new things, founding multiple STEM clubs, and competing in robotics, math, and coding teams. I work to spread and share what I learn through my extensive work with educational nonprofits  Fremont Debate Academy and NorCal Robotics. I have volunteered for over 400 hours and won the Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award three times for my work with these organizations. I also have multiple hundreds of hours of experience teaching and leading debate/public speaking programs as a Vice President for FDA, and it has become one of my favorite parts of my high school career. More than anything else, it is always important to me that I truly enjoy, love, and learn from everything I do.

My passion for learning and teaching has inspired my strong belief in the importance of education. In fact, if I could change any one thing in the world, I would make quality education accessible to every single person. I also believe that everyone should be given the same educational opportunities, regardless of their background, where they live, or what school they go to. This is why I have decided that my purpose is to create opportunities for others, educational or otherwise.
