I’m a high school junior with a deep interest in web development, biology and music. During the summer of 2018 I had the opportunity to take BIOS S-1a and CSCI S-33a at Harvard. I also performed Maple Leaf Rag on piano during the Harvard Summer Session talent show. It was amazing to live so many of my interests for 7 weeks. I was able to learn so much from the experience and make great, lasting friendships.
I’ve been learning web development since 2015. Other than CSCI S-33a, my web development journey has been largely self-taught. I have experience with CSS frameworks such as Bootstrap, Pure, and Spectre but I’m also completely comfortable developing without a CSS framework. I’m comfortable using Vue on the front-end and Django on the back-end. I primarily work with PostgreSQL as my database and have experience deploying my projects to Heroku.
One of my most long standing hobbies is music. I’ve played the piano since 2012 and have been absorbed with music ever since. I play keyboard for my school’s choir and for a youth rock band, though I also enjoy playing ragtime and Romantic era pieces. I occasionally produce trap and lo-fi hip-hop beats. My musical taste is diverse and spans many genres. A few of my favorite musical acts are Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, and Vulfpeck.
