Honors and Recognition:

  • My forte is in spelling, for I have been a regional contestant and finalist in the Spelling Bee, and a national contestant in the NSF Bee. I have also grown sharp at mathematics, climbing my way up to the State MathCounts competition in the most competitive of academic environments; Jenks. Currently I am training to play Lacrosse for Jenks Trojans.I believe music feeds our soul, I have been in chorus since elementary school and have also adopted the Tabla as my new instrument. Aside from that, I am very fond of community service. I have been volunteering with my parents and teachers through NJHS at local libraries, food banks, festivals, fairs, schools, and senior living centers. All of these activities have built my virtue, nurtured my heart, and strengthened my soul. In school, I try helping others to the best of my capabilities, which sometimes ends up with them surpassing me and getting perfect scores,Perhaps this was why I received the True Trojan of the Year Award at Jenks Middle School.

  • I also have a rich passion for and knowledge of wildlife, due to many scientific debates and visits to the Columbus Zoo.I have kin interest in public speaking and policy debate and desire to be a successful lawyer and/or Entrepreneur and some day, make a change so significant that the world would be even better place tomorrow.Most of all I feel blessed to be part of CRC Ambassador team,through which I can reach closer to my dream of empowering children through reading and character building.

    13. E-Waste: Dark Side of Digital Age >> These days, it's often cheaper and more convenient to buy a new PC than to upgrade an old one. But what happens to those old computers once they've been abandoned for newer models? The refuse from discarded electronics products, also known as e-waste, often ends up in landfills or incinerators instead of being recycled. And that means toxic substances like lead, cadmium and mercury that are commonly used in these products can contaminate the land, water and air.
