I am from Westminster, California, and will remain instate for college by attending Stanford University. Ever since I was a child I have had a fascination for the workings of the world and the physical sciences. Physics drew me in when I started reading theoretical physics ideas proposed in books by Hawkings and Feynman. I love physics for its duality; though it is intuitive, its implications are unexpected and often extreme. To me it is a pathway to philosophy and many other questions of existence. I constantly question further applications and potential twists on existing technology, and through my studies at Stanford hope to pursue the borders of reality.
