I am a freshman in the Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science studying there on the full tuition Charpie Scholarship.
I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and am considering minoring in Human Computer Interaction. I am expecting to graduate in 2016 and my current QPA is a 4.0/4.0.
• Principles of Imperative Computation
• Principles of Functional Programming
• Great Theoretical Ideas in Computer Science
• Matrices and Linear Transformations
• Math Foundations of Computer Science
I studied at Enloe GT Magnet High School and graduated Salutatorian with a 4.0/4.0 unweighted GPA.
I led the school's Science Olympiad Team of over 150 members. My responsibilities included coordinating numerous meetings, writing and proctoring team selection tests, and organizing travel to Regional, State and National competition.
Team selection for Science Olympiad is a very competitive process since over 150 students compete for 18 positions on the Varsity team. I reformed our system of team selection by implementing rigorous and merit-based testing that was more fair, creating a stronger and more dedicated team.
The hard work and new team selection process paid off and our team won at Regional and State competition to qualify for Nationals for the first time in a decade.
As Vice President of our school Future Problem Solvers team I coordinated meetings and practice sessions while recruting new members for the team. Future Problem Solvers competition stresses communication, teamwork and problem solving while under time pressure. Our teams swept the State Bowl and qualified for the international competiton.
I have played tennis competitively since age 12 and decided to giving private lessons to young players in 2011. I have coached several middle school and elementary school children during the summer of 2011 and through 2012.
