Hello! I am a loyal member of the [[John P. Stevens High School|John P. Stevens]] Science Olympiad team. I graduated in 2015 and now help with tournaments in the Northeast and Texas.
==History of Accomplishments==
===9th Grade===
In 9th grade, I was one of only 2 freshman to make the Alpha team (as our school calls our first team; the second team is called Beta) and one of only 4 freshman to make the States team, which is pretty amazing considering the lack of freshman the last two years.
I participated in Astronomy and Forestry. Actually, I kind of stumbled into Science Olympiad because I had never even thought of doing Science Olympiad until JP Day, a day for school fundraising, when my future biology teacher and the club sponsored a "Science Jeopardy", which is where I heard of Science Olympiad.
The first year was definitely a learning experience, but overall I felt satisfied with my effort. In addition, my team did extremely well, cracking the top 5 for the first time in school history with 4th.
*Union County Regionals:
**Astronomy: 19th
**Forestry: 10th
*New Jersey States:
**Astronomy: 8th
**Forestry: 16th
===10th grade===
In 10th grade, I started to get into the groove of things: however, things hit a rough patch when the results for my state event came out. In addition, my school didn't do as well as I would have liked, finishing 7th in both Regionals and States.
*Union County Regionals:
**Astronomy: 6th
**Forestry: 11th
**Fermi Questions: 14th
*New Jersey States:
**Astronomy: 15th
===11th grade===
11th grade was a huge success. I finally got a medal in an event that was not Astronomy and got into the top 5 at States in both events. In addition, my school got back into the top 5 at States and top 3 (essentially top 2 due to the two team per school phenomenon) at Regionals.
*Union County Regionals:
**Astronomy: 5th
*New Jersey States:
**Astronomy: 4th
**GeoLogic Mapping: 5th
**Entomology (a last minute thing): 11th
===12th Grade===
Surprisingly, at the UCC Regionals, I had my breakthrough with a silver medal. In addition, our team made it to 3rd place and advanced to states. At states, I was somewhat disappointed but not really (if that's really possible to occur) with my results, and moreover our team achieved our best results - 3rd at states!
*Union County Regionals:
**Astronomy: 2nd
*New Jersey States:
**Astronomy: 6th
**It's About Time: 5th
**GeoLogic Mapping: 9th
===After High School===
After high school, I unfortunately am unable to compete. However, I give back to the Science Olympiad community by helping out at local regional and invitational competitions and helping out the John P. Stevens Team whenever and however I can. (Go Hawks!) I graduated from Columbia University where I got a degree in astrophysics and a concentration in computer science. I moved to Houston, Texas shortly thereafter and plan to keep on volunteering in the region. Here are the competitions I have helped at:
