My Badges

Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

Curiosity about the workings of minds, brains, machines. I have been tinkering with electrical circuits since childhood and wrote a typed, single-spaced 45-page documentary on human behavior in 8th grade. I find it fulfilling to lead teams, and it seems that every time I am in a leadership position, whether through chairing a Toastmaster's speech contest, serving as saxophone section leader in jazz band, or serving as the first student president of the University Honors Program, I earn competitive leadership awards.
