Describe why you enjoy math: I enjoy math because I love problem solving. Using math, you can find the correct answer from using the facts given to you.

Describe how you anticipate using math in your future: I anticipate using math in Computer Science. Math is used to program computers. I want to use matrixes to solve current problems fast and efficiently, such as programing self-driving cars to be safer.

I have been involved in my community through the following service projects:

  • JOYful Learning Center: Volunteering with Intellectually & Developmentally Challenged Adults

  • JoyRide Center, Inc: Repair, Sand, Paint, Rake, Clean Facilities

  • Moses’ Closet Foster/ Adoption Care Center: Sort and Organize donated items

  • Serve Saturday: Clean out of church buildings; beautification

  • Widows’ Luncheon: Prepare and serve lunch to the widows of the church

  • 2017 Mud-Out Team: Clean out homes affected by Hurricane Harvey

My favorite project was: JOYful Learning Center, because we were able to interact with adults with special needs while playing games with them. 

I have set the following goals for myself for the next:

  • 1 year: I will be starting college, working towards my degree in Computer Science with a concentration in Computer Software. I also plan to continue to be involved in service projects and serving others through my church and student organizations.

  • 5 years: I plan to finish college and use the knowledge I have gained to find a job where I am helping others. I intend to continue with service projects and church involvement.

My parents have inspired me to consider: Computer Science because my dad is a programmer and has taught me computer skills in high school.

My favorite subject in school is, or has been: Math

My favorite extra-curricular activity is, or has been: Square Dancing because I have met my closest friends there.

The most challenging thing I have ever experienced is: working hard to succeed in school during the pandemic because online learning was more difficult due to the lack of gestures by teachers and because there were more distractions being on a computer.

My greatest accomplishment to date has been: my grades and hard work in school.
