A two year captain of Wayzata Science Olympiad who likes stories. I remember my college-bound friends encouraging eighth grade me to join Science Olympiad because it was "literally life," "Asian-initiation," and "both the best and most painful bus rides you can experience in high school." I finally joined Science Olympiad during freshman orientation, when someone I didn't like yelled at me to join Science Bowl.

Sophomore Year

aka "Pull Yourself Together"

I'm 90% sure I got thrown on our stacked team because I was that one kid who did the obscure events nobody else wanted to. I wasn't good, I just fit. This worked out for invitationals, but Regionals and State was a mess.

1 I technically wasn't even a fill in for Robot Arm, but we didn't have one the night before states so guess what I spent my night doing?

1 I wasn't even supposed to compete at RF, but a spot opened up, and nobody wanted to do this.

2 Our hovercraft got torn apart on the bus ride. It was beyond repair, so we impounded the carnage and took the test.

3 We were planning on dropping this event, but then all our builds broke on the bus. We showed up with no prep hoping we could could compensate for a dropped build, but then we just failed this even worse.
