My pronouns are he/him. I am a gifted student in grade nine and a soccer player. I strive to be a leader, an active member of my community by volunteering whenever I have the chance, and show excellence both in sports and academics. I am a future robotics engineer and data scientist, and I hope to one day develop a robot that will vastly improve the lives of many individuals. I was first in my school for the Pascal mathematics competition by Waterloo University, and received the Best Defender award on my soccer team.
Some of my favourite hobbies and interests include:
- Machine learning and data science
- Watching scientific documentaries
I enjoy playing Pokémon, especially competitive Pokémon, because it is game with a high skill ceiling that requires making strategic decisions and having a sound understanding of the Pokémon and moves being used in the current meta. I research how to use different Pokémon teams and moves, and which strategies are rising and falling in the current meta on a website called Pikalytics. Along with playing the Pokémon games I also collected Pokémon cards in the past. Looking at the new cards being released on the Pokémon website makes me feel nostalgic because it reminds me of elementary school.
My favourite YouTuber is Mark Rober because he posts entertaining videos where he takes his crazy ideas and uses science and engineering to make them a reality. His videos intrigue me because I want to be an engineer in the future. The video linked above is one of his best. In this video Mark Rober and another YouTuber called Mr Beast collaborate to promote their charity TeamTrees. Their goal is to raise twenty million dollars to plant twenty million trees. Mark Rober showcases a fleet of drones that could help reforest areas quickly after wildfires.
