About Me

I'm a high school senior at the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. I created a coding competition called CerealCodes, which gained over 1,000 participants in a year. I am interested in large language models, speech and audio processing, self-driving cars, tech startups, organizing events and competitions, and solving and writing competitive coding problems. Outside of academics, I enjoy traveling to places like South Korea, Europe, and the Caribbean, watching and playing soccer and football, investing in stocks, spending time with friends at the mall, and doing full-body workouts at the gym.
