Allison: I am an incoming senior at Arcadia High School. I am part of my school’s varsity percussion team. It’s really awesome. If you’re interested, I’d be excited to share some videos and tell you what it is we do. I am also currently working as a waitress at Stonefire Grill. I have two cats. My two cats, best friends, and family are the people I hold closest in my heart(: As for academic interests, I’m dabbling in different things in hopes of discovering something I am passionate about.
Harry: I am currently a rising senior at the Harker School in San Jose. I like to study Mathematics and Sciences in the classroom and enjoy swimming and playing water polo in my free time. As an avid student, I plan on continuing to study Computer Science or engineering in college. Outside of school, I also enjoy surfing the web and watching tv shows.
Kaiwen: I’m an incoming senior at Arcadia High School. I’m part of my school’s Math Team and Physics Team and am president of a club focused on exploring Japanese culture. I’m currently taking mathematics courses at a nearby city college. In my free time, I enjoy novels of all kinds, write poetry, and contemplate philosophy. I’m aiming for a career working with technology, so I plan to major in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science.
