I'm in 7th grade at Wood Oaks Jr. High School in Northbrook.
I learned through this competition how to write better and identify each of my cultural backgrounds. I want to be a doctor or lawyer in the future to help others.
My personal heroes are my mom and dad.
My personal interests are art, music, and writing. My greatest accomplishments are winning the 2006 Midwest Walgreen Piano Concerto Competition in the MYA Junior Division, playing solo at Carnergie Hall as the piano winner of the 2006 New Praise Society Competition and winning twice at the Sejong Piano Competition. Also, I was awarded best artist of my category in the 2006 State Fish Contest, and won the State Flower Contest.
Recently, I was awarded first prize for my division in the 2007 Holocaust Art Contest, as well as winning a silver prize in the 2006 Song A Literature Contest.
I am an active member of the Midwest Young Artists Orchestra as a cellist.
I also hold a black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do and enjoy singing.
