I am currently a sophomore taking GITA 3. I decided to take GITA 3 this year because of schedling conflicts. This year, I am taking many challenging courses, some of which are AP Euro, Japanese 2, Honors Pre Calculus, Honors Chemistry, and Honors English. Last year, I was part of the BOHS Marching Band, Basketball, and Academic Decathlon team. This year, I wanted to do more so I joined many new clubs and school groups. I currently part of the Mock Trial and Speech and Debate team, and I also joined many clubs, a couple of which I have leadership roles in. I plan to also take the AP Chinese, AP Euro, AP World, and AP Computer Science Principles Test this year. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball, table tennis, fishing, and eating.

On free days, I love to go to Carbon Canyon Regional Park. Did you know they have fish in their lake? I've caught many Largemouth Bass and Catfish from there.

Did you know that I used to have a part time job? In sixth grade, I was a fit model for Vans, which meant that I tried on prototypes of their unreleased apparel so the designers could note the quality, measurements, and fit of the products. I ended up being fired from the job, not because I broke a rule, but simply I outgrew the size they were looking for.(well it wasn't really "fired", per se, but you get what I mean).

One interesting thing about me is that I am an identical twin. Enzo is very charismatic and always loves a good joke(and a meal too). He is also very very good at table tennis . . .

About GITA

This year is my second year in GITA. I first learned to code through Khan Academy's JaveSript. I also used an online coding simulation called CodeCombat(I highly recommend it for any who wants to learn or get more experience in coding). Last year, I learned to code in C#, through Visual Studio. I also used HTML and CSS. This year, I am using Adobe Flash Studio to learn how to make Flash Animation. I am also taking a Python course.

So far, I really like Adobe Flash. At the beginning, it seemed a bit tedious but now that we're learning more, it's getting a lot easier. Check out some of the projects I have posted below. Enjoy! :)
