In high school, I was fortunate enough to be an active member of the Virginia Technology Student Association, and was elected by my peers to be the State Secretary and then State President of that organization. Through my time as a state officer, I was able to plan and carry out three different state leadership academies, where I was able to teach and interact with hundreds of students from across the state.
As a Boy Scout from Troop 38 in Bridgewater, VA, I was able to attain the rank of Eagle Scout before turning my attention to the younger scouts in my troop and helping enable them to also climb to the rank of Eagle through the sharing of experiences and many hours of teaching and training.
It is a personal philosophy of mine to try and use my knowledge and experience to help anyone who wishes to grow, improve, or engage themselves with the world in a new way. I love interacting with new information, and I find that the best way to master a subject is to engage with the material and then take what you have learned and teach it to others.
I truly enjoy teaching, and especially take interest in working with calculus, physics, environmental science, and critical reading. I am currently studying computer science at Princeton and have a particular interest in robotics and sustainable energy.
