About me

I’m a Colorado native, but my parents immigrated from Malaysia. I have an older sister who is studying at Mines, and she is about to graduate. My brother is working in California.

I just wrapped up my last season as a gymnast here this past fall. I’ve done gymnastics since I was 10, and I’ve done it at Lakewood High School since my freshman year. I just started coaching at TIGAR gymnastics in Wheat Ridge. It’s just something that is fun to me.

I like to bullet journal, and I made a club for that here. I also play piano and violin. I mostly play piano at home, but I’ve been in some competitions.

Off to college

I haven’t decided what school I’m going to go to yet. I’ve applied to the University of Colorado and to Colorado School of Mines. I’m looking to get into Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania, because they have a program where you can combine your major with another field. I want to combine computer science with art and try to make that work out. That really appealed to me. My major is not a solid decision yet, but I think I want to start off in computer science and see how it works out.

I am one of eight students in Jeffco Public Schools who is a candidate for the 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. We were selected from almost 3.6 million students who are expected to graduate from high school this year.
