〉What is one piece of advice you would give an incoming freshman?

Try new things. Don’t be afraid to be a leader even if others will judge you. Just go out and join any clubs or organizations and become the leader, become the president. Do something outrageous, something spontaneous.

〉If you were a superhero, which one would you be and why?

I’d be Batman because he’s a character who wants to make connections to solve crimes and solve problems on his own. He doesn’t like depending on individuals. He does things on his own and believes in himself.

〉What are you most excited about after graduation?

Obviously go to college and finally meet individuals who have the same goals as me, more people in the school of engineering in the school I’m going to at UT-Austin. Hopefully work on a project that will change the world while I use my skills from my degree.

〉Who inspires you the most and why?

For me it would be Dr. (Robert) Oppenheimer. He was the leader of the Manhattan Project that made the atomic bomb. That’s something I want to do. I want to make something that will revolutionize the world by bringing together a lot of individuals who will work on a common goal. I want to change the world through technology.

〉What’s been your favorite high school memory?

When I went to go watch a soccer game where I saw all my old teammates and they won. It started raining, and that made it exciting. Afterwards we went to CiCi’s Pizza and we had a good time talking and catching up with each other.
