Rolando La Placa
Harvard University


Background:

I am from Caguas, Puerto Rico, and I will study Physics at Harvard University because I would like to find answers to the "why's" and "how's" of nature. I have been self studying Physics for the past three years. Last year I won a bronze medal and the Gorzkowski Special Prize in the 40th International Physics Olympiads. This year I am going to Croatia to compete in the 41st International Physics Olympiads.
