I’m a student at Clemson University that hungers for intellectual and physical challenges. To satisfy my academic hunger, I’m an avid follower of multiple blogs including ClimateProgress, Yale Environment 360, TED.com, Treehugger, Lifehacker, Information is Beautiful, and Zen Habits just to name a few. On the other hand, I also enjoy pushing my physical boundaries through racing ultra-endurance races like the Sweetwater 50K. My musical taste is diverse, yet U2 is by far my favorite band. Bono’s unending search for justice in the world is very inspirational to me and I find his lyrics endlessly deep (U2 pun intended). Among my high school accomplishments are STAR student (highest SAT in the school), GA Governor’s Honors Program Finalist (Math major and environmental minor), Collegeboard AP Scholar, Salutatorian, and varsity letters in Track, Soccer, and Cross-Country. For cross country, I ran a PR of 17:03 (5:29 min/mile), finished 10th in the region, achieved GA Elite standing, won county (as a team), and ran in the GHSA State Championships in 9th, 11th, and 12th grade.
