I am currently thirteen, in grade eight and live in Antigonish, NS. I have many accomplishments, the main one is completion of two first year University courses on C programming at StFX, with one of the highest marks in class. I completed an online Gaelic course from St. Anna's Gaelic College. I have a brown belt in Tae Kwon do (with two gold medals in sparring, one gold medal and two silver medals in forms). I’ve played the violin for 4 years. I am in my school’s Table tennis, violin, chess, and badminton clubs. I assist with the Community Science Center, and plan on teaching a robotics workshop for this summer’s camp. My interests range from computer science, neurology, math and science to history. I want to design an electric-powered car and to make a human useable AI in real time. I enjoy literature from the 1800s like Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray. Also I like fantasy/fiction books like the Dragon Lance and Silverwing trilogies. I listen to rock, alternative, hip-hop, Celtic and intrumental music and play various video games. I am fluent in Farsi, English and learning Gaelic, French and C.
