  • I am a member of Ignatians Service Organization, a group of committed students that volunteer at various sites in the Los Angeles area including 186th Elementary School and Dockweiler Beach.

Interests in Biology and Mathematics

  1. My favorite aspect of biology is the complexity and diversity of life that has evolved over millions of years to fit precisely into systems.
  2. My favorite aspect of mathematics is that seemingly abstract concepts can be applied to accurately to actual systems in the world. My favorite area of mathematics, and an area that I think embodies this idea, is calculus.
