EducationSophomore Neurobiology and Music Composition Major at Carnegie Mellon University
ExperienceI participated as a tutor in peer tutoring programs throughout high school and middle school for math, biology, and music theory for both honors/AP and regular levels. Additionally, as the president of my high school's Academic Decathlon team I planned content lectures the 10 subjects, designed assignments and study plans, taught course material, lead learning activities, and individually tutored to ensure the success of the 36 team members in competition. Through this experience I have both refined my own study skills but also and more importantly I have found ways to individually address each student's learning style and encourage them to pursue study methods that fit best with them and help them to not only learn the material but enjoy it more.
My SAT Score was 2360 (800 Critical Reading, 760 Math, 800 Writing). I received 5's on Psychology, U.S. History, European History, Calculus BC, English Language, English Literature, Macroeconomics, Environmental Science, Biology, U.S. Government, and Human Geography; and I received a 4 on Latin and Microeconomics. I took the SAT subject tests in U.S. History, Math Level II, Biology, and Latin and received 760, 790, 800, and 620 respectively. I have been playing clarinet for 10 years and piano for 11 and have participated in the California All-State Honor Band and the All- National Honor Band. I have also received an award of Merit from the Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts in Music Composition as well as the California State PTSA Reflections Award for Music composition for two years. I am currently taking a variety of science and arts courses at Carnegie Mellon University and I am working as an undergraduate researcher in both a cognitive psychology and a neurobiology lab during the semester in addition to working as a lab tech and a researcher in biology labs during the summer.
HobbiesI am interested in all types of music and understanding how we perceive music (thus my combined major). In my spare time (when I'm not studying or practicing)I like to cook, read, paint, and go to concerts. I hope to be able to live abroad for some period of time in the future because I love learning about other cultures and truly getting a taste of how others experience the world.
