What are your aspirations in your art form and/or career aspirations?

Though it is often hectic to juggle numerous lessons, practicing, recitals, competitions, and concerts, I feel blessed to have music in my life. Another interest of mine has always been science and biology. I would like to double major in music and science when I go to college. With the technology today, I have always seen myself working in a lab, finding innovative discoveries to help the people of the world. Regardless of what does happen, though, music will hold a special and irreplaceable place in my heart forever.

What do you do for fun? Do you have any interesting or unusual hobbies?

I love capturing memories and the beauty of nature with my camera; photography allows me to express the appreciation I have for the world around me. I am truly thankful for the unconditional love and support my family has always given me; I treasure any free time I am able to spend with them.

What is something unique about you that you would like people to know?

I have an infectious, embarrassingly loud laugh that seems to explode from nowhere. Also, I am ambidextrous (which comes in handy for piano).
