Fun facts

  • I graduated from South Salem High School, and am a proud IB alum and Saxon.
  • I love learning! I particularly like learning languages. I know several languages: English, Spanish, Japanese, some ASL experience, Java, Javascript, Python, and some HTML from middle school. Japanese must be my favorite of them all.
  • I prefer tea to coffee, and I generally take both black.
  • I love necklaces and prefer them to rings.
  • I love games! I play videogames and board games, and I have recently gotten back into chess (modest Elo) since I didn’t bring my gaming PC to campus when I started in 2020.
  • My favorite genre of music is alternative or post-grunge rock, and nu metal; I also really enjoy foreign music (J-Rock/pop, Spanish pop…)
  • I have three cats and a dog. I’m always very eager to talk about them!
  • I’m pretty much an open book
